> Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organization,
> Sustainable Ecosystems Division, Alice Springs, Australia
> Settlements in desert Austraila are defined by extreme: variable but
> mostly dry climate, generally low primary productivity at landscape
> scale, low population density, small numbers of people residing in
> settlements and great distances to other settlemens or services.  Many
> settlements require significant government resources to remain viable,
> spawning much debate about how much public money should go to
> supporting the relatively small number of people who live there.
> Viability is defined in terms of a combination of infrastructure, and
> financial, natural, human and social capital.  Social capital, the
> measure of social cohesiveness, is difficult to measure, as it is
> defined by quantity and quality of interactions between people, rather
> than tangible assets.  An agent-based framework is presented that
> demonstrates the nature of social capital, and the role of cooperative
> behavior and social networks in community viability.  Preliminary
> findings of the model suggest that communities with intact social
> networks are viable even when other forms of capital are scarce, and
> communities without functioning social networks are not viable even
> when money or other assets are plentiful.

> Session Description
> The session will describe an ongoing research program whose purpose is
> to evaluate (a) the effect of the current and proposed Americans with
> Disabilities Act Accessibility Guidelines (ADAAG) for the
> built-environment on the egress of individuals with disabilities
> during the mass pedestrian flows (MPFs) triggered by health-safety
> events, and (b) the effect of security-oriented design methods on the
> egress of individuals with disabilities during health-safety event
> triggered MPFs.  The objective of the project is to measure the
> emergent behaviors of heterogeneous sample populations of five
> representative built-environments (an airport, high school, conference
> center, multi-story office building, and secured federal development)
> during simulated health-safety events.  Agent-based simulations are
> used to measure these behaviors and their effect on individuals with
> disabilities.
