Abstract
This paper will describe the steps performed for taking into account probability in human behaviour aspects when performing an evacuation analysis in case of fire in a building. The research is part of the development of a risk assessment methodology to quantify the life safety risk for people present in buildings in the context of the creation of a fire safety design. In the methodology, human behaviour and its implication in acute events is one of the key features in performing a risk assessment. From research has been shown that several human behaviour parameters have a significant impact when determining the risk to life in case of fire. Therefore, initial steps are taken to implement those aspects, parameters and influence factors into a quantitative life safety risk assessment model. The final goal of this part of the research is to develop or adapt a submodel which can take into account the most important input parameters and influence factors and implement them in the form of a procedure or conceptual model as a complement to existing evacuation models.
