Abstract. This paper presents a multiagent simulation of passenger evacuation in case of the inclination of a ship under the storm. Evacuation process depends on many different factors: environmental properties (such as wind velocity, intensity of waves), behavioral aspects of a human and so on. In order to describe a passenger's behavior in an evacuation situation considering the inclination of a ship, we use a force-based model adapted from multiagemt system. Our approach provides an opportunity to estimate evacuation time depending on intensity of waves, rate of sailing and relative direction. Proposed model can be used in couple with ship flooding or fire propagation simulation and also it can be used in decision support systems for crew assistance.
