HS-SFM parameters.

The Pedestrian’s parameters

= 77, 83 kgThe pedestrians’ mass: uniformly distributed within the range 77, 83 kg
= 0.25, 0.30 mThe pedestrians' radius: uniformly distributed within the range 0.25, 0.30 m

The SFM’s parameters

 kg/sec2The strength of the contact (pushing) force
 kgm−1 s−1The strength of the friction
 m/sThe preferred velocity
 sThe reaction time
The fluctuation source of the pedestrian’s acceleration is randomly assigned to each individual
