SOME ASPECTS OF FIRE BEHAVIOR OF RUNNING COACH IN A TUNNEL

Behavior of a fire in a passenger coach passing through a tunnel was investigated in the Sarutoge tunnel. The effect of the heat from this fire on the tunnel was also studied. It was found that a train with a fire in a car could be kept running for a considerable distance in a tunnel without any danger to passengers if passengers were evacuated an appropriate distance in the train. No danger to tunnel facilities would result from a burning coach.
