Kennedy Lecture to be held at IMechE
September 24, 2012
Bill Kennedy, a well-known expert and pioneer in tunnel ventilation, passed away recently. His global reputation in tunnel ventilation was recognized in March of this year by the International Symposium on Tunnel Safety and Security, which awarded him its 2012 Achievement Award, citing his “long and illustrious career in ventilation engineering of tunnels” and calling his lifetime body of work “a shining example of wedding practice and theory in the design of tunnels.”
In his honour, a session entitled “Kennedy Lecture” was arranged at the Institution of Mechanical Engineers in London on 24th September 2012. Dr Fathi Tarada’s lecture entitled “The Critical Velocity for Smoke Control” is available here to download.
