Subjectperformance measure; range; uncertainty; instrumentation; experimental setup; data analysis
AbstractThis report begins with a brief overview of the escape, evacuation and rescue project, in particular the concept of performance measures. The contribution of data analysis and instrumentation to the uncertainty of the results is described in detail, citing and quantifying the relevant sources of uncertainty. Alll contributions to uncertainty are gathered, and for each point of interest that marks a performance measure, or at either end of a time segment or distance that represents a performance measure, a procedure is devised for calculating the range of uncertainty around that point.
