This master's thesis dissertation covers theoretical and practical aspects of simulation modeling. Development of systems theory in social sciences is explained through three wawes, from which the newest one integrates complexity theories, as well as chronological development of different simulation modeling approaches since their beggining in the mid 20th century all the way to multi-agent simulations, which are more frequently used in sociological applications. Pedestrian simulation is a specific interdisciplinary research area, with a focus on finding self-organised collective patterns which emerge from simple traffic interactions. In order to present possible applications of multi-agent simulation we used traffic simulation software VISSIM 7, with an add-on modul VISWALK based on extended social force model. On the specific case of the east coast of Split's port area we developed two scenarios. First scenario consists of the model calibrated with field data amd the second one with assumed peak values during summer season. Comparative analysis showed signs of the onset of critical values and emergence of selforganised patterns. We suggested measures for temporary safety improvements and emphasized the absolute necessity of finding a long-term sustainable solution for the whole area, which represents a public space vital to city's future development and improvement of citizen's living standards.
