PhD topic – Development of evacuation management tool for rail transport
The safe and efficient movement of passengers during an evacuation in underground railway transportation systems is a major public safety concern. This research aims to develop an evacuation management tool for underground railway transportation systems, enabling the development of appropriate strategies and design solutions to minimise the delays in the evacuation process, thereby reducing injury and improving chances of survival in an emergency.
