|Title:||More Thoughts on Defaults|
|Published:||September 18, 2012|
|Abstract:||In this paper, the use of default values in egress models is explored and specific values are proposed to combat issues of model misuse. The authors suggest that defaults should represent the most credibly conservative estimates available for core egress components represented within the model.|
