Abstract

In this research work, the human behaviour during strong seismic events is studied. This aspect is of paramount importance in emergency for being able to develop effective evacuation strategy and increasing the safety level of emergency response personnel and people operating critical facilities. In particular, the quantification of the evacuation and control ability to maintain their stable position of normal people has been initially assessed through shaking table tests. The experimental tests have been performed with the support of virtual reality by replicating indoor and outdoor environments. Vital parameters have been collected through sensors. This work involves at this stage two research groups in Italy and Chile with the aim of evaluating strategies and methods on this topic that is rather new in earthquake engineering. This is supposed to be the first step of further investigations on larger campaigns, and number of individuals as well, in order to achieve a comprehensive statistic.
