    Abstract

    The recent developments of the evacuation programme FDS+Evac are presented including a counterflow model for continuum crowd modelling. The major new additions are described and some verification and validation results are presented including an analysis of specific flows through doors and corridors. The presented additions are implemented in the latest version of FDS+Evac. This version is embedded in the computational fluid dynamics based fire simulation programme Fire Dynamics Simulator, which is freely obtainable from the FDS web page http://fire.nist.gov/fds/.
