Abstract
The objective of this work was to examine the evacuation process in a smokefilled environment. In a series of six experiments, eight subjects (in each experiment), were instructed to walk through a smoke filled room. The time and the smoke density were measured and the subjects
comments were collected. Geometry, lighting and smoke density was varied during the experiments. The smoke was of a non-irritating kind generated by a smoke generator. The work addresses both technical aspects as smoke density, lighting and walking speed as well as behavorial and orientational aspects. A model for estimating the orientational conditions was developed from the Visual Access concept first presented by J. Sime. The toxicological and physiological... (More)
