Abstract

We present a nonlinear traffic flow network model that is coupled to gaseous hazard information for evacuation planning. This model is evaluated numerically against a linear network flow model for different objective functions that are relevant for evacuation problems. A numerical study shows the influence of the underlying evacuation models on the evacuation time as well as the exit strategies.
