How to model and simulate large pedestrian facilities accurately? This dissertation answers this question by analysing current pedestrian models and expanding one. The developed model (Nomad) describes pedestrians as individuals that minimise walking efforts. The model is expanded including behaviours that correspond to activities performed in pedestrian facilities such as train stations and airports. The model is calibrated and validated using a novel methodology that obtain parameters of general use.
