Society is built on standards, and standards promote innovation! When everyone in the industry uses the same starting point - a common standard - then good practice can be implemented more easily, which in turn makes it easier to build our society in a safe, sustainable and profitable way.
Lund University and SINTEF independent research organisation, are conducting a survey in which they seek attendees. In the experiment, the subjects will move in a computer-generated environment and the study is investigating human behaviour in a road tunnel where different incidents can occur.
A literature survey seeks to acquire and compile knowledge that can enhance self-rescue for people in a critical situation during a tunnel fire in long bi-directional single tube road tunnels.
Gaseous fuels and electric vehicles pose new risks to road tunnels. It's important to know how to deal with these new challenges, says SP Technical Research Institute of Sweden (SP) in this research.
The increased use of new energy carriers in subterranean spaces will break new grounds in terms of public safety. The SUVEREN project investigates physical phenomena that may occur in connection with the use of new energy carriers, and will investigate the fire behavior of electric batteries and gas pressure vessels as well as composite materials installed in vehicles.
