Austria has a long tradition in construction and operation of road and rail tunnels. Safety for users and accident response management have become important topics for existing and newly designed tunnels. Following the successful tradition this international symposium offers again the possibility to exchange knowledge and to gain deeper insight into the newest developments in the fields mentioned below.

The focus is put on:

Ø Ventilation: design, fireloads

Ø Emission and emission factors

Ø Risk analysis and assessment of safety related equipment and measures

Ø RAMS analyses for rail and road tunnels

Ø Choice of ventilation systems in relation to risk analysis

Ø System tests (tunnel – safety – ventilation)

Ø System tests for commissioning, recurring tests

Ø Tunnel operation

Ø Refurbishment and upgrading of tunnels under operation

Ø Innovative concepts and installations

The programme covers plenary lectures on April 25th and 26th as well as technical visits on April 27th, 2016.
