Abstract:In this research, several evacuation strategies have been tested to establish their effects on a multimodal evacuation in an urban area. The main goal has been to analyze what the effects would be of a new evacuation strategy that has been developed by University of Florida student Ashwin Arulselvan. He developed a methodology to find efficient paths for cars and bus frequencies for any multimodal evacuation. Unfortunately, his computer model was not able to produce useful results within the time frame of this research. Therefore, this research analyzed eight other strategies and their effect on the evacuation of an urban area. Besides the analysis of the strategies, a manual has been written that can be used to implement and analyze other strategies in the developed network. This paper will only consider the effects of eight tested strategies.
