Examples and Java applets

Evacuation of a room
The evacuation of a room with no internal structure (i.e. a ballroom) through a single door. The velocity profile can be seen as well as all other fields. The problem of conflicts and friction between pedestrians can be investigated through the friction parameter pfric.

Evacuation of a room with two doors
The particles can leave the room through two exits at the top wall. The space between the exits is variable.

Running through a room
Particles enter the room by a certain variable probability and leave the room through a door at the middle of the top wall.

Corridor with periodic boundary conditions and bottleneck
The particles move through a corridor with periodic boundary conditions. In the middle of the corridor lies a bottleneck with variable width.

Evacuation of a lecture hall
As an example of a more complex geometry the evacuation of a stylized lecture hall is presented. The particles leave the room through non-traversable tiers.
