Fires in road tunnels present challenges for those designing and operating these important items of critical infrastructure. The confinement of the tunnel and the potential for multiple sources of combustible materials produce severe fire loads on structure, and difficulties for those evacuating or needing access to carry out firefighting and rescue activities.
In our latest paper, John Dunk of PFPNet, Bart Hendrix of RWS and Micha de Jong of Efectis look at the benefits that passive fire protection brings to the offshore oil and gas industry in protecting people, business and the environment from the immediate and long term effects of fires. There are lessons to be learned from this experience for those considering how to provide fire protection for road tunnels.
