Abstract [en]

Numerical and theoretical work was conducted to investigate the effect of tunnel cross section on critical velocityfor smoke control in longitudinally ventilated tunnel fires. The results show that for small fires, the criticalvelocity decreases with both the increasing tunnel height and tunnel width. For large fires, the critical velocitysignificantly increases with the increasing tunnel height but is independent of tunnel width. Differentcalculation models are compared with a focus on effect of tunnel cross section. A new correlation is proposedto account for the effect of tunnel width based on the previous model.
