Assessment of Narrow-Body Transport Airplane Evacuation by Numerical Simulation.
"JOURNAL OF AIRCRAFT", v. 48
This paper presents the results obtained with a new agent-based computer model that can simulate the evacuation
of narrow-body transport airplanes in the conditions prescribed by the airworthiness regulations for certification.
The model, described in detail in a former paper, has been verified with real data of narrow-body certification
demonstrations. Numerical simulations of around 20 narrow-body aircraft, representative of current designs in
various market segments, show the capabilities of the model and provide relevant information on the relationship
between cabin features and emergency evacuation. The longitudinal location of emergency exits seems to be even
more important than their size or the overall margin with respect to the prescribed number and type of exits indicated
by the airworthiness requirements
