## Trampling

An interesting question in modelling is: just what are the material properties of people in a crowd? In better terms, how is it that a crowd will react in a crowded setting when there is a catastrophic event?

Goal: to use finite automata to accurately model crowd behavior in a stampede situation, then use this to develop a continuous model of crowd stress which can be used to analyze building structure and exit locations.
