Road tunnel deluge systems require substantial amounts of water, which can have significant impact on the storage, delivery and drainage systems. Fixed fire fighting systems (FFFS) are gaining attention as a means for providing an early response to a road tunnel fire. While these systems have been used for a considerable time in Japan and Australia, their incorporation into road tunnels in other parts of the world is now being evaluated. One of the major issues this paper explores is the water… Expand
