Collective Phenomena Teaser

Collective phenomena in crowds — Where pedestrian dynamics need social psychology

Experiments at entrances to concert halls reveal significant influence of the spatial layout of barriers on the density in the crowd. Differentiating between collective phenomena, behavior and action, the role of social norms is analysed.

Focus

Experiments

Experiments

We conduct experiments involving the movement of pedestrians as well as the dynamics smoke and flames.

Models Focus

Models

We develop numerical models to understand and predict the dynamics of crowds and fires.

Applications

Applications

We use our empirical and numerical models in the context of engineering applications.
