BIM-based safety design for emergency evacuation of metro stations

Metro stations are the hubs of urban rail transit, and large numbers of people usually gather inside them. Various types of emergency can lead to a need for evacuation. However, there are few studies on proactively reducing emergency evacuation risks through the design for safety (DFS) concept, and these risks pose serious threats to the operational safety of metro stations. Therefore, in this research, fragmented DFS pre-control measures for mitigating emergency evacuation risks were comprehensively identified and classified, and indicators for evaluating the evacuation design effect on reducing emergency evacuation risks in the operation phase were improved. Moreover, through the combination of the DFS application method and BIM platform, intelligent safety design tools were provided for metro station designers so that they may apply the DFS concept to emergency evacuation risk mitigation in real cases.
