AbstractTo investigate the performance of the current emergency ventilation strategies of both the L.-H.-La Fontaine and the Ville-Marie tunnels in the event of a fire, a research project is being conducted by the Fire Risk Management Program of the Institute of Research in Construction of the National Research Council of Canada (B-4258). The research project will use Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) models, calibrated and validated, for the simulation of the behaviour of smoke originating from fires in the two tunnels. The calibration and validation of the models will be conducted through venting tests in the tunnels.
