Abstract (in Japanese) (See Japanese page) 
(in English) Building evacuation simulation provides us with various knowledge and suggestion before a real disaster happens. To date, however, evacuators were often modelled as homogeneous without individual motivation in a large-scale urban simulation model, which is rather different from real human behavior. In this paper, an evacuation simulation model with human psychological models is developed for urban disaster situation. Two psychological factors, i.e. psychological delay and emotional contagion, are incorporated by introducing the anxiety parameter and the mechanism to recognize other agents. Psychological delay is the initial evacuation delay caused by a belief that abnormal events rarely happen. Emotional contagion is the effect of one person's emotional state on the emotional state of people around him/her both explicitly and implicitly. Agent attributes are also introduces to realize another psychological factor, altruism. Simulated experimental results show that the proposed model provides accurate evacuation behaviors than the normal behavior model without psychological consideration.
