Pathfinder / Pathfinder Model Problem = crazy agent
« on: September 05, 2020, 08:44:13 pm »
I want to create a model where there are doors that allow a single agent to pass through. For this, each door has a flowrate = 0.01 pers / s.
The model has 10 doors and 10 agents as you can see in the image.
The problem is that agents are left waiting at the closed door or next to another agent at a door. The agents do not use the available doors, I consider it a mistake when they have doors through which they can evacuate.
Are there any settings in the profile that I need to change?
I want agents who find a closed door to look for an open door. Don't wait before a closed door, is that possible?
Thank you.

PyroSim / Fire hypothesis
« on: December 12, 2018, 10:44:06 am »
Hello, how do I do Pyrosim to have several initial fire options? But run the fds with only one option.
I have a building model with 4 floors. One fire option is in the basement and the other option is on the third floor.
How do I have to do the 2 fds having only one file psm?

PyroSim / Pyrosim + Evac (stairs)
« on: December 10, 2018, 09:05:32 am »
Hello, my name is Ana. I'm learning Pyrosim.
I do not know how to create stairs in pyrosim for evacuation.
How many doors should be placed in the model of the photo?
I am with the Pyrosim manual but it does not contain information regarding the evacuation and stairs part. Where is there a tutorial?
I add an image of the model, they are 2 plants.
Thank you
