EVACUATION FORM SHIPS: ACCOUNT FOR SHIP MOTION

Computer models can integrate human factors and equipment and thus provide excellent opportunities for predicting overall performance during a ship evacuation. However, current computer programs do not include all of the important factors necessary for maritime safety. This paper presents a BriteEuram program on passenger evacuation from ships. Factors addressed by this program that are not incorporated in other computer programs include dynamic ship motion and the effects of heel/list (ship leaning to one side) on passengers' behavior. The paper also examines the effect of ship design in moving and tilted environments.
