2016.2 Highlight
« on: November 21, 2016, 10:06:59 am »

A very good afternoon,
When will be possible to work with the new version of pathfinder?
I need to modelate assisted evacuation processes.
As we would see in a speaker's presentation (FEMTC-2016)it is possible to modelate this process (horizontal displacement) with Pathfinder but I am skeptic about the result since nowadays is not possible to modelace the shape of wheelchair or assisted beds with pathfinder (It is not possible to modelate beds, wheelchairs, etc through cylinders).
Them How to quantify the impact of the shape of this vehicles in the total evacuatiĆ³n process, the interaction between these vehicles and normal occupants in narrow corridors, the movement of assisted beds and wheelchairs which overcome corners in narrow corridors etc?, What happen with vertical displacement?
Best regards.
