Abstract

Taking large-span rectangular underwater tunnel as the research objective, numerical calculation model of lateral concentrated smoke exhausting in rectangular underwater tunnel was established by FDS. The adaptability of lateral concentrated exhaust mode in tunnels of variable widths is obtained according to analysis of smoke distribution and smoke exhausting efficiency under different working conditions. The results are as follows: The increase of width results in the decrease of smoke exhausting efficiency. In the two-lane, uni-directional tunnel, the smoke exhausting efficiency is 83.38%; while that of six-lane, uni-directional tunnel is only 55.19%. The wind velocity is higher in the area near the lateral exhaust valves; and which is lower in the area far from the exhaust valves. The influence of wind velocity for lateral exhaust valves is limited. With the increase of width, the wind velocity of cross-section decreases dramatically. In a two-lane, uni-directional tunnel, the wind velocity of the right wall decreases by 32.03%, and that in six-lane, uni-directional tunnel decreases by 59.62%. For large-span rectangular tunnels of uni-directional four-lane or even wider ones, the lateral centralized exhaust mode shows poor adaptability.
