  • Evacuation of people during emergency situations is a crucial aspect when considering building design. Recently, numerous simulation methods have been constructed to provide insight during building development. The aim of this paper is to understand the causes of crowd disasters and review the simulation methods that are currently in use. Advantages and disadvantages of the different methods will be discussed as well as work that lies at the forefront of current research in this area.
