Significance for science
Scientific contribution of the project is analysis of traffic, ventilation, fire and evacuation models that can be used for fast simulation of accidents in road tunnels. We have identified shortcomings of curently used models and proposed new approach for simulation of the emergency events such as tunnel fires among others. Our research can serve as basis for development of tunnel equipment testing methodology and operator response testing methodology. This way tunnel safety studies could be carried out more efficiently. A comparison of safety level in different tunnels could be done by applying same methodology on different tunnels. Main objective of the project, integration of above mentioned models, has been achieved. It provides possibility for simultaneous simulation of events inside the tunnel by taking into account tunnel geometry, equipment and traffic distribution. It will be used as a basis for optimization of the intervention during the emergency events and for minimization of energy consumption by the ventilation and lighting during normal operation. To sum up, the integated models will serve as a basis for the tunnel operator training tool.
Significance for the country
Most of the Slovenia's population uses road network for daily migrations and for cargo transport. Road tunnels are cruical part of the network due to the rough terrain. When travelling through the tunnels, population is exposed to an increased risk during its daily migrations. The goods that are transported through the tunnels are exposed to the risk in the same way. Our models, developed and analyzed in the project will contribute to the development of a training simulator for road tunnel operators. It should contribute to the increase of safety level in road tunnels and increased operator preparedness to properly manage emergency situations. Consequently this will result in lower probability of accidents and in case an accident occurs its consequences will be minimized by proper actions taken by the operators and emegency services. Apart from above mentioned, the models could serve for comparative analysis of safety level in different road tunnels.
