Evacuation Modeling and Management
Emergency management has become an important issue around the world, since the happening of the 911 Attack in the United States in 2001, the Hurricane Katrina and Hurricane Rita struck the United States in 2005, the Sichuan Earthquake in China caused the number of casualties about 68,000 in 2008, the Typhoon Morakot caused widespread devastation across southern Taiwan in 2009, and the earthquake and tsunami in Japan in March 11th caused serious impacts in Japan in 2011.
Due to the frequent happening of catastrophic natural disasters and man-made disasters in recent decades, emergency management has become an important issue around the world. Therefore, effective traffic operations for emergency evacuation during emergency events are critical to alleviate the impact from disasters.
