Representational Framework for Pedestrian Movement Simulation in a School Environment

This paper presents some techniques developed in order to explore the relationship between school design and pupil movement outside of formal teaching activity. In this context, the paper presents the development of techniques suitable for use in this application. The process has to be appropriate to school design and to have as its aim the accurate prediction of crowding in the proposed design.
