Abstract:
Egress systems, in concert with evacuation plans and crowd management, form the fundamental basis of safety design for emergency events, yet there are few complete and comprehensive books covering the broad nature of this subject. This book fills this gap by providing a review of egress design and analysis, covering egress fundamentals and strategies, performance solutions, human behavior, evacuation modeling, evacuation planning, and crowd management. The authors present egress concepts that are both prescriptive and performance-based, accounting for human behavior in emergency conditions as well as a range of expected hazards.

Contents: 1. Building codes and regulations -- 2. Historic events -- 3. Egress strategies -- 4. Prescriptive egress concepts -- 5. Supporting systems -- 6. Human behavior considerations for egress system design -- 7. Performance egress concepts -- 8. Evacuation planning and crowd management -- 9. Design solutions.
