Sensitivity calculations of tunnel fires using CFD

Tuovinen, Heimo; Holmstedt, Göran LU and Bengtson, Staffan (1996) In Fire Technology 32(2). p.99-119
Abstract
Detailed numerical simulations of fires in road tunnels were carried out using the CFD code JASMINE. Fire tests performed in the Ofenegg tunnel have also been validated. A parametric study of fires in an arbitrary 300-m-long tunnel was made, in which the influence of fire size, tunnel width, ventilation and ground slope was investigated. The movement of hazardous temperature and smoke regions as a function of time was calculated to investigate escape possibilities from the tunnel in case of fire.
