|Abstract:||A minute and a half, this is the given time to evacuate the aircraft in case of need after an emergency landing. This period is fixed no matter how many passengers are on board, no matter other considerations. The aircraft must be evacuated within 90 seconds. To improve current strategies and protocols for efficient evacuation, a comprehensive study of passengers' behavior should be conducted. This study includes the analyses of different scenarios that could happen during an accident and the definition each aircraft's characteristics, taking into account external factors that may affect the evacuation time. To develop such a study nowadays, object-oriented simulation tools are used. Simulation allows us to create a close system model, so every different scenario can be studied. We present a model to analyze different scenarios for evacuating an Airbus 380. Our aim is to determine the best scenarios to be considered in those situations.|
