Course Description

Next generation crowd flow simulation and visualisation Centre for Digital Entertainment in conjunction with Buro Happold, Stipend starting at ?15,090 Applications are invited for an Engineering Doctorate (EngD) in the Centre for Digital Entertainment (CDE), a collaboration between the University of Bath and Bournemouth University, with Buro Happold http:www.burohappold.combhhome.aspx. This 4 year studentship, fully funded by the EPSRC, offers the opportunity to conduct research in an industrial context. Project Next generation crowd flow simulation and visualisation Crowd flow simulation uses sophisticated agent-based modelling techniques to predict the behaviour of people within a building or an urban space. This prediction allows us to optimise the design and management of spaces, making them robust for normal and emergency conditions. With the technologies in computer graphics, VR, GIS, network analysis, and GPU based computing converging, there is an increasing demand for rapid simulation tools that not only produce accurate simulations but also provide realistic visualisations of crowd movement. This project aims to progress the development and use of the next generation crowd flow simulation tools with detailed interactions between the agents and their surroundings allied to high quality visualisations. The fast models would enable the execution of thousands of runs testing different designs and scenarios and enabling optimisations using sensitivity analysis and Monte Carlo simulations. The work will extend Buro Happold?s crowd flow simulation software ?SMART Move? that brings together the strengths of network modelling and agent-based simulation technologies to offer integrated modelling of people, transport and baggage. The use and development of the software on real design projects will be aimed at enabling the tool to be market leading, whilst providing the candidate with the invaluable opportunity to become an expert in the field of crowd flow modelling. Company Buro Happold is proud to work on some of the most exciting and inspiring engineering projects around the world. From the Louvre in Abu Dhabi to local specialist schools in the UK, and masterplanning the city of Sabah Al Ahmad Sea City to the World Trade Center Memorial Pavilion in New York, we have a real passion for the built environment. We work with many of the world?s most renowned architects and clients, always striving to take engineering excellence to ever higher levels as we find better ways to tackle challenges, whether that?s keeping buildings cool in the desert sun, minimising environmental impact or lowering carbon emissions. Our engineers work in all areas of the built environment ? structural engineering, building services, masterplanning and a wide range of specialist disciplines. We have over 30 years' of experience providing high quality, innovative solutions, which help to minimise impact on the planet. http:www.burohappold.combhhome.aspx. CDE The Centre for Digital Entertainment (CDE) is a new collaboration between the University of Bath, Bournemouth University and a host of industry partners across the computer animation, games and visual effects industries. The CDE has been awarded ?6.3 Million initial funding from the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC). The CDE will focus on providing research-level skills as well as technical and management expertise to people heading into the specialist industries of computer animation, games, visual effects, visualisation and simulation. Please see http:www.digital-entertainment.org for more information. Studentship The program lasts 4 years. 75% of your time will be based in a company engaged on research projects. You will be supported by access to options from a suite of Master?s programs from both universities. The taught program will be negotiated by you, your academic supervisors and the host company so it can be tailored to your particular research needs. Suc
