  • Know About Tunnel and Environmental Monitoring

    Building a house may take a few months. Someone who has ever supervised the construction of a house must be aware that there are so many activities which are done for it. Now, think about the large construction projects. The roads, flyovers, railway tracks etc. we use today are result of rigorous hard work and planning undertaken by different construction companies. A large number of decisions ...

  • Wind Tunnel Balance System for Vehicle Aerodynamic Developments

    In vehicle development steps, optimization of aerodynamic properties is often carried out in wind tunnel facilities. The vehicle is placed upon the measuring platform of the balance. The wind tunnel balance now allows the precise measurement of six forces and moments induced by the air flow. The HORIBA wind tunnel balance system can be equipped with a moving ground system which makes the air flow ...

  • Psychosocial factors, perceived risk and driving in a hostile environment: driving through tunnels

    A large part of the research on risk in driving has been related to the consumption of alcohol and other substances. However, few studies have analysed risk behaviour in relation to road infrastructure. It took the dramatic accident in the Mont Blanc tunnel to highlight the lack of knowledge about the human factor involved in tunnel accidents and about the factors affecting emergency situations ...

  • State-of-the-art road tunnel safety

    This paper presents the current state of French and European practices for road tunnel safety. It rapidly surveys the main aspects of legislation, and then presents the evolution of risk governance in tunnels from being initially focused on technical devices to gradually integrating human and organisational aspects in the approach of safety. A brief presentation of recent projects dealing with ...

  • Measurements, model simulations and reduction of CO concentrations inside an urban road tunnel in Milan

    A programme to improve the air quality inside the road tunnels of the Italian city of Milan has involved three steps: 1) evaluation of the air pollution levels inside some tunnels; 2) planning an air improvement project for one tunnel, supported by effectiveness evaluation; 3) implementation of this project. The characterisation of the air quality was carried out by measuring the typical traffic ...
