Multi-agent Simulation of Passenger Evacuation from a Damaged Ship Under Storm Conditions

In this paper, the authors present the multi-agent model for simulation of evacuation processes considering ship motions and the method for modeling crowd dynamics. To take into account all aspects of the specifics of the evacuation in storm conditions the information model has been developed. This model based on three interrelated processes: sea waves dynamic; ship motions under the influence of sea waves; crowd dynamics under the ship motions. In the authors' research developed a combined method for simulating agent’s movement on the inclined decks of the ship. Their approach joins the classical implementation of Social Force model with the possibility of collisions with obstacles. Depending on the specific issues it is possible to use three different models for ship dynamics on irregular waves. Due to that fact in the simulation of passenger evacuation was developed a distributed test bench based on cloud platform CALVIRE. Having analyzed the results, these outputs could be applied to design contingency plans to assist the crew members in the frameworks of decision support systems (DSS).
