Abstract: In this paper, we develop a discontinuous Galerkin method on triangular meshes to solve the reactive dynamic user equilibrium model for pedestrian flows. The pedestrian density in this model is governed by the conservation law in which the flow flux is implicitly dependent on the density through the Eikonal equation. To solve the Eikonal equation efficiently at each time level, we use the fast sweeping method. Two numerical examples are then used to demonstrate the effectiveness of the algorithm.
