SP Tunnel and Underground Safety CentreSP's research platform for underground constructions (SP Tunnel) has a unique competence in the area of fire, risk and safety. We have expertise in the following areas: fire dynamics, smoke ventilation, concrete, material properties, vehicles, detection and sprinkler.
We help companies, public authorities, emergency services and manufacturers of safety equipment to produce new knowledge in order to maintain a reasonable level of safety. For example, we want to facilitate the tunnel builders with new security solutions, we want to give authorities the knowledge and support we want to spread the knowledge contained in research platform for underground constructions.
SP will together with our subsidiary CBI Swedish Cement and Concrete Research Institute develop the research field. The aim is that SP Tunnel become the world leader in the field. To achieve this, we intend to increase the number of assignments, research projects, theses, doctorial students and collaborations nationally and internationally.
SP Tunnel is under development but will focus on:
• Performing full scale test
• new areas of research and collaboration with universities and institutes
• develop new fields of activities
• more extensive international and national cooperation
• course and conference activities
