well as into any civil complex that may gather notable pedestrian flows – city malls, theatres, meeting rooms, skyscrapers – and in urban elements such as shopping streets, main important squares, pedestrian flows in case of exceptional events, etc. In order to create
an instrument to support technicians into pedestrian terminal projects and optimum layout definition according transport needs, an interesting approach was developed. Starting from analytical background for facilities dimensional range definition, through pedestrian dynamics modelling and cost objective function definition the application of genetic algorithm combined with social force models allows to identify a domain of optimum solutions compatible with pedestrian needs.
