Pathfinder / Behavior - Initial Delay - Log Normal distribution
« on: September 28, 2016, 12:52:45 pm »
Hi,

the user manual does not provide information on the definition of the statistical parameters used in the Log Normal distribution used for the 'Initial Delay' behavior.

What is the field 'Avg' and 'Std. Dev' standing for? After some testing, it seems that the Log Normal distribution reacts as a Normal distribution.

A log normal distribution of a stochastic variable is defined with mu and sigma. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Log-normal_distribution

E.g.: for mu=5, and sigma=1 => median value=148s, and value with highest probability is about 60s.

Thanks

Pathfinder / Assisted evacuation - wheelchairs
« on: September 26, 2016, 06:55:32 am »
Hi,

I'm working on a model of a new high rise building accommodating a healthcare facility for ambulant therapeutic treatment of people with physical disabilities.
Any suggestions to define properly the profile for assisted evacuation of people in wheelchairs or assisted evacuation of people with crutches?

Thx
Les
