the book focuses on the designing and running and building of tunnels with regards to their fire safety elements. This is an updated second edition of the book. The book is a specialist design title and is technical, not an overview of the topic but rather in depth. It has some managerial elements within it, in terms of what you will need to know in tunnel fire safety. Spanning the spectrum of current knowledge available in the field of tunnel fire safety, Handbook of Tunnel Fire Safety covers a diverse range of topics. This new edition includes new information on automatic incident detection (AID), fire suppression in tunnels, heat release rates in tunnel fires, new case studies, and all up-to-date information on probabilistic modelling and tunnel fires, and tunnel fires and human behaviour. The book will appeal to all concerned with fire safety in tunnels including designers, operators, regulators, emergency services, equipment manufacturers and researchers.
