Abstract

Large-scale evacuation is called for when a natural or man-made extreme event strikes a populated area so that the population is exposed to immediate or foreseeable life-threatening danger. Evacuating a large population is an extremely complicated and difficult task, which primarily relies on efficient utilization of transportation systems, and effective evacuation schemes. This paper presents research that is aimed at developing an emergency evacuation modeling capability, which entails a careful integration of an optimal evacuation time and route choice model, as well as a traffic simulation model. Experiment results demonstrate the proposed methodology's operational planning capability for large-scale emergency evacuation management.
