The Roundhouse, Camden Evacuation Simulation

A University of Edinburgh collaboration

The following work has been produced by two students at the Edinburgh School of Architecture and Landscape Architecture. The work formed part of their Architectural Management, Practice and Law module within the Master of Architecture course.

Richard Fleming and Max Ochel carried out an analysis that looks at how The Roundhouse, Camden functions in a mass evacuation scenario at fully capacity. The study’s aim was to analyse the effect of specific building regulation compliance had when a renovation was made with it in mind.

The students used the pedestrian simulation software Oasys MassMotion to test the efficiency of the building’s egress strategy in its current state and before the 2006 renovation and extension.

Simulating the two layouts

The video above shows a simulation that demonstrates the difference between two different structural layouts or designs when simulating an evacuation. The original structure is shown to the right and the new structure after the renovation on the left.

Through comparing its current layout and functionality with its use prior to its renovation the effects of building regulation compliance is highlighted; the time taken to evacuate 3,000 people from the building is reduced from 6 minutes 52 seconds to 2 minutes 48 seconds.

Richard Fleming said “We found two functions particularly useful in terms of data output, firstly the experienced density map, seeing the measure of the average density experienced by the agents during the simulation, computed as a weighted average. Secondly and rather unexpectedly we found it particularly useful the ability to export the simulated people from the model at a fixed point in time as which we could then work back into other modes of representation, such as the digital axonometric drawings shown at the start of each page. ”
