TEST OF ICICLE PREVENTION IN VERY COLD ZONE

A major problem encountered in tunnels in cold areas is the formation of icicles or ice on tunnel sides; in extra cold areas, freezing is the main problem. These problems are particularly acute in snow zones, where train operation is only made possible by procedures to dislodge the icicles and scrape the side walls. Active prevention methods are being investigated, involving field tests in Kamihaboro Tunnel.
