Problems Associated with Evacuation from the Ship in Case of an Emergency Situation

Abstract: The problems associated with evacuation of people from the ship in an emergency situation are analyzed, especially passenger ships are taken under consideration. The most dangerous accidents requiring evacuation are described. Marine accidents often occur as eliminating all of the hazards to human health and life is still impossible. In every case, the evacuation process from the ship must be taken under consideration. Evacuation route arrangement should provide the possibility of safe departure from danger areas for passengers and crew members. Evacuation routes designed for human interaction within the evacuation process and other important factors are reviewed. Additipnally, the method for seeking evacuation time as a function of initial distribution of passengers and evacuation routes choosing is suggested. A genetic algorithm will be used, whilst the calculated evacuation time is connected with a fitness function. Parameters of evacuation routes topology are coded as non-binary chromosomes. Genetic operators are fitted for such types of problems to avoid receiving infeasible solutions. The objective of the proposed method is to find the evacuation time in worse case scenarios.
