Formulation of immediate response and evacuation strategies through intelligent simulation assessment and large-scale testing

Objective

FIRE EXIT proposes to equip the marine industry with a Ship Evacuation Simulator that is a quantum leap in the level of reliability, realism and design utility of today's ship evacuation software. The FIRE EXIT ship evacuation simulator will be capable of addressing issues of mustering, ship motions, fire and abandonment. In achieving these aims FIRE EXIT will take as its starting point the very leading edge of the current state-of-the-art in ship evacuation simulation, fire simulation and large-scale experimental facilities and significantly enhance these capabilities. The results of this project will include the development of fire and physical mechanisms enabling realistic simulation of ship motions.
