Research output: Contribution to journalConference articlepeer-review


We will introduce a basic simulation model, using SOARS. We designed the simple simulation model of a building fire to describe the agents' escaping action from a fire. In this simulation, a fire brakes out in a building suddenly. A fire rapidly spreads across the floor, and even to the next floor. The people have to escape from the building when they find or notice the fire. We show the algorithm and the result, how the fire spreads the floor and the people escape from the fire, of this model and the possibility of future model.
