[Objective] This paper is to analyze evolution path of network public opinion in the emergency management of unexpected events, and discover the relation between evolution of netizen crowd behavior and public opinion of unexpected events. [Methods] Design a Multi-Agent model which involving Agent properties, interaction and game rules among Agents, cross validation method between online and offline, and simulate this Multi-Agent model based on NetLogo system. [Results] With an empirical study, the feasibility of the Multi-Agent is verified. [Limitations] The interaction and game rules of Multi-Agents need to be optimized based on more empirical study in special domain. [Conclusions] Agent-Based Modeling can combine netizen crowd behavior and real environments for modeling and simulating, and can discover the inner rule of the public opinion evolution in the unexpected events.
