Pedestrian dynamics: main advantages of using simulation modelling

One of the most popular subject of research of simulation modelling is pedestrian dynamics. Today systems of mass service serve a huge passenger flow every day: Heathrow Airport (London, 200 000 persons/day) , railway station Termini (Rome, 450 000 persons/day), Hartsfield-Jackson  Airport (Atlanta, 250 000 persons/day), Shinjuku railway station (Tokio, 3 600 000 persons/day), Grand Central Station (New-York, 750 000 persons/day). Delivery of services of ticket buying, security, organization of eating areas, cooperation with external transport systems  -  that all is not a simple task for any system of mass service.
