Re: Passenger transportation model

Hi Dburgn, See attached model 20200304 Transportation model.mod where I introduced some techniques that might help you to achieve what you want. 1. Use of tables to store settings in a central location. I added a table named ModelSettings. This table contains the distance to be used. In your servers...

Re: Problems with GlobalVar during runtime

Hi Fabian, Global variables are best defined in the following location: Menu > Modeling > User Functions. You will see a field that says "initialization code". You can use that field to declare global variables. The code will be executed only once on initialiazation and not during the run....

Re: Flowsplitter enabled during simulation?

Hi, In case you used flowsplitter_setenabled (which only works before running) it is better to use FlowSplitter_UpdateEnabled See also attached example where the action timer changes both the direction of the passageway and enables the flow splitter (there are multiple ways to do this.... I now chos...

Re: Saving resets layers?

Hi,

Unfortunately there is no way to prevent it. Maybe the following helps a bit:

- It is possible to fix the elements (shape/location/size) by clicking this button for a selection of elements:

Re: Multiple Escalators

Hi, Thank you for adding the model, that helps a lot. Please see atthached for the solution: - The flow splitter didn't do anything because the option "Use Trigger Area" was selected, with the trigger are being on the wrong side of the line. I suggest to not use that option and just set th...

Re: Multiple Escalators

Hi, Using a flow splitter is usually a good way of solving this issue. Based on your video I have the following suggestions: - Place the destination lines of the flow splitter a bit more further down/up the escalators. In that way the agents won't be able to turn back once they reach the destination...

Re: Chances of 2 agents going to the same stand.

Hi Kenneth, Find attached an update of my model, where the number of agents to generate comes from the user table CrowdData. To check what I did, please go to: - Menu Modeling > User Tables, here you'll find a table CrowdData that contains a value for the west and east entry. - Then go to Modeling >...

Re: Chances of 2 agents going to the same stand.

Hi Kenneth, From your post I understand that you have more or less two groups: WestStands and EastStands. See attached for an example model of how you could implement that in (I think) the easiast way. In the model, please have a look at: - The settings of the 4 stand sections, each of them having a...

Re: Chances of 2 agents going to the same stand.

Hi Kenneth, I'm not sure I did understand your question correctly, but I prepared a small example for you. See the attached model file. Is that what you were looking for? The agent route starts with an activity entry. In the activity entry you'll find a 70/30 distribution over the two entries. The a...

Re: Change of ECM path when stop then play

Hi, For this question I would like to refer to one of the example models which you can find in: MyDocuments\Pedestrian Dynamics\3.1 (or 3.0 if you're using the previous version)\Example Models\evacuation\convention center evacuate 1.mod The element to check is the Action Timer (right lower part of t...
