What is it about?

A new proposal to model smoke dispersion in closed environments using the concept of potential fields joined with cellular automata and we have tested our behavioral model in a real scenario, the Kiss nightclub tragedy.

Why is it important?

We often visit places with a large concentration of people, such as malls, football stadiums, restaurants or nightclubs. In the media, there are often reports of emergency situations in these places. It is known that in a fire situation, one of the main causes of death is the inhalation of smoke.


Define a new approach to help in emergency situations and to define places with a large concentration of people.
