AbstractThis report presents the activities completed in Task 1 of the International Road Tunnel Fire Detection Research Project ? Phase II. These activities include the selection of ten fire detection systems representing five types of currently available technologies for the fire test program. Each system meets the requirements established by the projects Technical Panel for the application of fire detection systems in tunnels, and meets the recommendations from Phase I of the project ? Review of Prior Test Programs and Tunnel Fires. The five technology types are: linear heat detection systems, flame detectors, CCTV fire detectors,smoke detection systems and spot heat detectors. General information and operating principles of these systems are described in the report.
