The critical ventilation velocity for transverse double fires in tunnel

Qiuyi Zhang & Guihong Pei
The critical velocity of longitudinal ventilation is one of the most important parameters in tunnel fires. Most previous studies simulated fire scenarios in which only one fire source exists in the tunnel. However, the critical velocity will change under the condition of transverse double fires. In this study, the critical ventilation velocity under the transverse double-fire condition compared with the single fire source was analyzed by using the Fire Dynamics Simulator (FDS). The results show...
