The process of crowd evacuation may pose a threat to the public safety. If accidents occur in the evacuation crowd, it is very likely to hinder the process of evacuation, or even cause injury or death. Hence, it is necessary to study the feature of evacuation dynamics. In view of the two important parameters involved in safe evacuation, RSET and ASET, this paper analyzes and compares the two widely used safe evacuation standards based on their different RSET magnification effect. Applicable scope of the two evacuation standards is divided which will provide enough accuracy for safe evacuation analysis and facilitate future relevant study.
