Wide-area Evacuation Difficulty in Densely-built Wooden Residential Areas

Takuya Oki, Toshihiro Osaragi

Distributed hybrid simulation of the Internet of things and smart territories

Gabriele D'Angelo, Stefano Ferretti, Vittorio Ghini
2017 Concurrency and Computation  
Complex scenarios are decomposed into simpler ones, each one being simulated through a specific simulation strategy. All these simulation building blocks are then synchronized and coordinated.  ...  Three different simulation models are combined together, namely, an adaptive agent-based parallel and distributed simulator, an OMNeT++ based discrete event simulator and a script-language simulator based  ...  The most relevant partitioning approaches have been discussed in [31] .
