Aiming at the evacuation problems of passengers under the influence of storms, the impact of adjustment action, pause phenomenon and linear velocity on pedestrian walking speed was studied and modeled. Based on marine rescue simulation system, experiments of walking speed for single people under different ship rolling angles were designed and conducted. By collecting and analyzing the information of walking behavior of participants, this pager obtained the relationship between human walking speed and the angle under the influence of ship rolling motion. And a velocity model for ship evacuation considering wave scales was built. Taking the 7th deck of Bohai Cuizhu as the simulation environment, evacuation simulation was carried out in the case of fully loaded to get the reference evacuation time of passengers in different wind scales and the evacuation status at different moments. The results contribute to assess and can be used for reference to the process of ship evacuation.
