Fire behaviour of asphalt mixes

French regulations relative to highway tunnel safety define the minimum requirements for safe use, particularly the requirements for reaction to fire and fire resistance of tunnel structures and equipment. Road surfaces are not part of the tunnels structures and are therefore not affected by the regulatory requirements of reaction to fire. However, it is interesting to know the behaviour of asphalt mixes in the event of fire in situations where fire breaks out accidentally in vehicle travelling through a tunnel.
