Risk perception and behavior of users in tunnel fire.


Road users' risk management behavior in tunnel fire situations depends on their knowledge of safety devices and their behavior in the face of danger.
We hypothesized that the unpredictability of the circumstances in which fires occur, as well as drivers' lack of knowledge about safety devices, are likely to have an impact on their behavior. The present study is a detailed analysis of actual tunnel fires, with a close examination of user evacuation strategies and procedures. In our analysis of 11 tunnel fires, we studied drivers' behaviors and the strategies they use to deal with a fire.

Development, implementation and analysis of the effectiveness of using the boardgame Transport Sugoroku to convey the social dilemma implicit in car and train use



This lecture will give an overview of Transport Sugoroku, a communication tool developed to encourage people to change their travel behaviour from cars to other sustainable travel modes as Mobility Management. The results of a study analysing the effects of implementing Transport -Sugoroku using the framework of game theory will also be presented. The aims of this study were the following two :
1) To develop the rules of Transport Sugoroku Boardgame and to comprehend the effect of changing attitudes before and after participating in the game.
2) To understand the relationship between the characteristics and composition ratio of the strategies of Transport Sugoroku Boardgame by analysing the process and results of the game and typifying the strategies of the players.

Dr.-Eng. Ayako Taniguchi is professor of University of Tsukuba, Japan. She continues to apply the findings of psychology to urban transport planning from 1999. She started her career as a construction consultant engineer in 1997, obtained her PhD (in engineering) degree from Hokkaido University in 2003 and has been studying at Tokyo Institute of Technology since 2003 and at University of Tsukuba since 2005.
