Prague, Oct. 2013
On 30th September another ITA COSUF Workshop took place at the Road Tunnel Complex Blanka in Prague. The largest underground construction in the Czech Republic is being carried out within the completion of the North-West section of the City Ring Road in Prague.
Approximately 25 participants were present. First of all, three lectures were given on operational safety, improving the level of safety using control systems and its algorithms and finally on the optimization of the ventilation system. After a brief discussion the audi-ence had a drive through the tunnel including a visit of the main ventilation machinery room and the duct shafts. The visit gave a very interesting insight into how the construction of tunnels in the Czech Republic, and how safety and security is maintained in with the tunnel systems. The next day after the workshop the ITA COSUF Activity Group Meetings took place at the House of the Technical Societies very close to the Karl’s Brücke (Charles’ bridge) in ancient Prague.
