Abstract

This paper investigates pedestrians' behaviours in the turning regions in the Xizhimen subway station passageway in Beijing. Through data-processing and data analysis, it can be concluded that the pedestrians tend to turn approach at the turning arc and the speed during the turn decreases initially and then increases. Based on the existing social force model, this report improves the pedestrian simulation model by introducing the gravitation and piecewise functions, thereby increasing the accuracy of the conclusion. Subsequently, in this paper, the improved model is programmed to simulate the behaviours of individual pedestrians and pedestrian flows in the turning area; the results verify the effectiveness of the improved model.
