Speaker: Michael K. Lindell, emeritus professor, Texas A&M University; affiliate professor, University of Washington.
Accurate modeling of large-scale evacuations, such as hurricane evacuations, requires an understanding of how households decide whether and when to evacuate. In turn, this requires a level of collaboration between social scientists and transportation engineers that began nearly 40 years ago but is still progressing slowly. This presentation will describe an integrative summary of research on this topic by two social scientists and two transportation engineers. The presentation will address evacuation demand (time-dependent departure rates), evacuation logistics (evacuation routes, destinations, and accommodations), evacuation demand management strategies, and evacuation zone reentry.
