INCREASE OF ROAD TUNNELS SAFETY USING TUNNEL TRAFFIC & OPERATION SIMULATOR (2016)
Tunnels, constructions used to shorten transport routes and to improve road safety, are specific engineering structures where the safe operation is very important. Tunnel Traffic & Operation Simulator (Simulator) was created as a solution of research task focused on increasing safety in road tunnels within the framework of the project “Centre of Transport Research (CVD)” funded by European Regional Development Fund (ERDF). The Simulator is located on Faculty of Civil Engineering of the University of Žilina (Slovakia) and is adapted to control the tunnel in two operator’s mode which are functionally convertible. They can during the operation of the simulator control the tunnel's technology and operation in normal conditions and in exceptional situations. Thanks to this, they could work under the pressure with non-performance threat to the tunnel technology and safety of their users. The coordinator checks and assesses the correctness of their conduct.
