Abstract

A framework to enable the systematic analysis of Response Phase behaviours is presented and applied to an unannounced evacuation trial in a university library in the Czech Republic. The framework not only provides a consistent method for describing Response Phase behaviour, but also provides a framework for classifying and quantifying the Response Phase other than simply using the overall response time. The framework also provides a means of predicting average response times based on a number of empirical factors. This work forms the basis of a large study concerned with investigating the impact of culture on evacuation behaviour.
