Abstract

This paper proposes a High Speed Train Evacuation Analysis Methodology (HSTEAM) for conducting evacuation analysis assessments for new high speed rolling stock designs. The methodology was developed through consideration and assessment of an actual high speed train. The methodology includes the identification of key reporting information to be provided, evacuation scenarios to consider, and suggested analysis to include within the assessment. The methodology can be used to facilitate improvements to high speed train design through the utilization of evacuation modelling. This can be used to demonstrate either compliance with a given fire safety code or explicitly demonstrate people onboard a train can evacuate before untenable conditions occur during a fire. A demonstration case study of HSTEAM is provided of a CRRC Qingdao Sifang Co., Ltd high speed train design for the European market using the MassMotion evacuation model.
