About the CD

The two-disc interactive CD-ROM package contains all of the text and graphical information found in the original nine volume, 3800-page Comprehensive Test Report produced for Phase III of the Memorial Tunnel Fire Ventilation Test Program. It also contains a number of additional sections and elements which provide a greater depth of information and understanding about the test facility, test program, and final test report.

Disc # 1 is organized into 5 main sections:

  1. The first, or "Overview" section provides video and text summaries of the test program and the CD-ROM.

  2. The second, or "Test Facility" section contains video, text and graphics, as well as a comprehensive photo library of the entire tunnel facility. A unique feature within this section allows the user to "Visit the Site" and experience a 3D computer model of the tunnel including animations, detailed renderings, and a series of Interactive Virtual Reality locations throughout the project site.

  3. The third, or "Test Operations" section, contains video, text, and graphics explaining the plans, preparations, and procedures for all of the fire ventilation tests.

  4. The fourth, or "Test Results" section contains findings and conclusions for all of the ventilation tests, and features a series of animations and detailed descriptions for each of the 10 ventilation concepts tested.

  5. The final, or "Comprehensive Test Report" section contains a summary for each of the nine report volumes, as well as a table of contents which identifies all of the fire tests conducted for the entire fire ventilation test program.
