 Abstract
The purpose of the study is to plan efficient evacuation route for evacuating persons safely in emergency situations by analysing pedestrian flow in mixed-use buildings. The study has performed by the following approaches: initially, main circulation system and evacuation routes are investigated through four case studies. Second, pedestrian volumes are analyzed based on the outcome of the case study. Finally, the study develops evacuation route planning which is suitable for emergency situations by reviewing the connection between main circulation and evacuation routes. According to the study, the following conclusions were made: evacuation route planning is required to consider pedestrian density, building scale, and space characteristics. Also, the core plan should include evacuation staircases and E/V and the evacuation route need to be easily recognized.
