Abstract

A first-principles model for the simulation of pedestrian flows and crowd dynamics capable of computing the movement of millions of pedestrians in real time has been developed. The pedestrians are treated as `intelligent' particles subjected to a series of forces, such as: [...]

Abstract

Dynamic Data Driven Application Systems (DDDAS) appear as a new paradigm in the field of applied sciences and engineering, and in particular in simulation-based engineering sciences. By DDDAS we mean a set of techniques that allow the linkage of simulation tools with measurement devices [...]

Abstract

An explicit time integrator without the CFL < 1 restriction for the momentum equation is presented. This allows stable large time-steps in problems [...]
