AERODYNAMICS AND VENTILATION OF VEHICLE TUNNELS. PAPERS PRESENTED AT THE THIRD INTERNATIONAL SYMPOSIUM, SPONSORED AND ORGANISED BY BHRA FLUID ENGINEERING, HELD AT SHEFFIELD 19-21 MARCH 1979. VOLUME 1

(Continued from TRIS 00307544) At this symposium the following papers were among those presented: ventilation system for motorway tunnels (Lowndes, JL and Fudger, G); Austrian method for calculating the fresh air demand in road tunnels (Freibauer, B, Pischinger, R and Pucher, K); Analysis of train drag in various configurations of long tunnels (Qwthorpe, RQ, Pope, CW and Green, RH); Aerodynamic measurements with high-speed trains (250 km/h) in the Heitersberg Tunnel. Comparison of theory and experiment (Gaillard, MA); Transient pressure measurements at the top of the engine 103 during the passage through the Heitersberg Tunnel (Treigbstein, H); The use of a hydraulic analogy for modelling the unsteady flows in railway tunnels (White, WR and Pope, CW); Alleviation of tunnel entry pressure transients: (1) experimental program (Dayman, B and Vardy, AE); Alleviation of tunnel entry pressure transients: (2) theoretical modelling and experimental correlation (Vardy, AE and Dayman, B); Induced ventilation in road tunnels - A comparison between full-scale and model studies (Pursall, BR and West, A); A wind tunnel study of the influence of wind on the ventilation of road tunnels (Vermeulen, PEJ); Research into the testing of booster fans and other equipment for the longitudinal ventilation of road tunnels (Roche, L); Fire in rapid transit vehicle tunnels (Cochram, IJ); The practical problem affecting the design, control and handling of emergency incidents in vehicular tunnels (Doherty, MJ); Traffic break-downs, wind and the longitudinal ventilation of road tunnels (Jongedijk, H). In addition there are two discussion papers: Health standards and monitoring in tunnel atmospheres in the United Kingdom (Pursall, BR); operational feedback (Allenby, H). /TRRL/
