World Road Association’s (PIARC) New Standard on Tunnel Design Fires
August 11, 2011
The World Road Association (PIARC) will shortly be publishing a new report on design fires for tunnels, which will go some way towards clarifying how the tunnel fire risks can be assessed and managed. In particular, the report provides updated information on fire heat release rates and the time-development of vehicle fires, based on experimental tests.
Eurotransport magazine has published an article by Dr Fathi Tarada, co-chairman of PIARC’s Working Group on Air Quality, Fire and Ventilation, on the new report. The article can be accessed here.
