Abstract
This report describes evacuation experiments, which were performed in a smoke filled tunnel. The tunnel was filled with artificial smoke and acetic acid was used to achieve irritation of the eyes and upper respiratory tract. In the experiments 46 persons walked through the tunnel one at a time, while they were filmed with infra red cameras. All participants answered a questionnaire and some were also interviewed. In the experiment

different equipment was tested. The equipment included flashing lights at the emergency exits and directional guiding lights indicating the direction to an exit. In the report the relationship between walking speed and smoke density is presented and analysed. The participants ́ behaviour in the tunnel... (More)
