The definitive architectural resource on designing for egress, evacuation, and life safety

Egress systems, in concert with evacuation plans and crowd management, form the fundamental basis of good life-safety design for emergency events, yet there are fewcomplete and comprehensive reference books covering the broad nature of this subject.

This book fills this gap by providing a comprehensive review of egress design and analysis, covering egress fundamentals and strategies, performance solutions, human behavior, evacuation modeling, evacuation planning, and crowd management. The authors, both recognized experts in the field, present egress concepts that are both prescriptive and performance-based, accounting for human behavior in emergency conditions as well as a range of expected hazards.

Contents include:

A review of historic and recent tragic life-loss fire events

An overview of prescriptive and performance-based U.S. building codes

Practical design solutions for a wide range of occupancies

Techniques for coordinating egress systems with other critical life safety systems
