Out for review across Europe.
In this chapter I review the original PhD (2000) objectives and evaluate these in light of the last ten years of practical experience of crowd simulation development, applications and deployment. I outline the problems of crowd management, how knowledge of risks, best practices and information relevant to crowd safety is lost due to poor event recording and documentation.
I define a method used to both capture and pass on best practices, site and event knowledge and crowd/event specific information related to risks. I also define a cost effective solution to the key problems of site design and outline how these have been applied in consultancy projects, teaching/training programs (that had been delivered around the world for over a decade).
I also discuss the consultancy applications for a wide range of modelling and analysis techniques and the history of the development of simpler analytical techniques for crowd risk analysis and safety engineering.
