New Insights into Pedestrian Flow Through Bottlenecks

  title={New Insights into Pedestrian Flow Through Bottlenecks},
  author={Armin Seyfried and Oliver Passon and Bernhard Steffen and Maik Boltes and Tobias Rupprecht and Wolfram Klingsch},
  journal={Transportation Science},
Capacity estimation is an important tool for the design and dimensioning of pedestrian facilities. The literature contains different procedures and specifications which show considerable differences with respect to the estimated flow values. Moreover do new experimental data indicate a stepwise growing of the capacity with the width and thus challenge the validity of the specific flow concept. To resolve these differences we have studied experimentally the unidirectional pedestrian flow through… CONTINUE READING
