This study focuses on the application of evacuation models to test the efficiency of seven different total evacuation strategies in high-rise buildings. The questions prompted about the suitability of different components and strategies for high-rise buildings are strongly dependent on the characteristics of the building under consideration. In the present work, although the model case study includes the combination of several egress components, the authors acknowledge that a single case cannot be representative of all the possible high-rise building configurations. The selection of the model case study was deliberately made in order to give a vast range of applicability to the findings of this study. For this reason, the characteristics of the model case study have been selected to be representative of today’s buildings. Nevertheless, there was the necessity to impose certain features that may significantly affect the results (e.g., building use, number of floors, egress components, etc.).
