  • Environmental Impact of Existing Pavements

    The management of negative consequences such as the deterioration of the living environment, road hazard, energy consumption, air pollution, noise, biotope modification and road congestion are today's major challenges. We often talk about the long term but work on a short-term basis without any realistically-targeted, [...]

  • Road Tunnels: Emissions, Environment, Ventilation

    Due to a steady tightening of emission laws for cars and changes in the risk assessment of a tunnel fire, some design data need constant updating. The Report of the PIARC Committee on Road Tunnels to the XXth World Road Congress, 1995 (20.05.B) reviews the art of tunnel ventilation over the last 15 [...]

  • Road Tunnels: Vehicle Emissions and Air Demand for Ventilation

    In 1990 and 1995 PIARC published the calculation methodology and the emission factors for road tunnel ventilation design. An update of the existing PIARC methodology was necessary, as the emission standards of the vehicles were becoming more stringent and hence the vehicles cleaner. The old version [...]
