MASSVAC is a computer simulation model developed for the analysis and evaluation of evacuation plans for urban areas threatened by natural disasters. In addition to area demographic characteristics, network geometry, link parameter, and risk factor are inputs to the model. The model outputs include network clearance times, best evacuation routes by zone, optimum shelter locations, sites of possible traffic bottlenecks, and proper traffic management strategies to alleviate them.
