AbstractThe development of a bi-directional pedestrian-flow model based on the reactive dynamic user equilibrium principle and the look-ahead behaviour that induces a viscosity effect on movement patterns is described. The pedestrian density in this model is governed by the conservation law, in which the flow flux is implicitly dependent on the density through the stationary Hamilton-Jacobi equation that is solved using a pseudo time-marching approach. A solution algorithm is proposed and a numerical example is used to demonstrate the effectiveness of the methodology. © 2009 Thomas Telford Ltd 2009.
