  1. 1. Ventilation strategies for road tunnels in different countries and consequences using Fixed Fire Fighting System (FFFS)

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Avdelningen för Brandteknik

    Author : Rohan John Baptiste; [2017]
    Keywords : Longitudinal ventilation; fixed fire fighting system FFFS ; fractional effective dose FED ; Technology and Engineering;

    Abstract : A study is carried out on the ventilation strategies for road tunnels in different countries and consequences using fixed fire fighting systems (FFFS). The type of ventilation strategy for road tunnels can ensure the safety of people during the evacuation stages and protection of the rescue services during their intervention of the fire. READ MORE

    Abstract : This report analyzes fire extinguishing solutions that might cut time between fire alarm and fire extinguishing at the European Spallation Source. A special design fire with a very high peak heat release rate is used. READ MORE

  3. 3. The Use of a Water Mist Curtain as a Radiation Shield

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Avdelningen för Brandteknik

    Author : Daniel Martin; [2015]
    Keywords : water curtain; radiation attenuation; water mist; radiation; Technology and Engineering;

    Abstract : Water mist systems have seen an increase in use as an alternative clean agent fire suppressant since the late 1980s after the use of Halon gases were discontinued. One of the potential uses of these systems is to provide a protective curtain between a fire and desired target. READ MORE
