Computer-based simulation can provide ship designers and evacuation planners with a reliable means to study passenger movement during the evacuation of passenger vessels. Controlled experiments are used to quantify abandonment times for passengers of differing age, sex, mobility and experience as they use a wide array of different life saving appliances in varying weather conditions. The results of such experiments represent critical input for computer-based simulation.
