....a computational tool for the simulation of fluid flow, heat transfer, and smoke transport
in tunnels.

SOLVENT is a Computational Fluid Dynamics tool for the simulation of fluid flow, heat transfer and smoke transport in tunnels. SOLVENT was developed specifically for tunnel ventilation applications during Phase IV of the Memorial Tunnel Fire Ventilation Test Program. SOLVENT has undergone extensive validation using the Memorial Tunnel fire tests.

We invite you to explore our website and learn more about why we feel SOLVENT can be a valuable tool for anyone interested in CFD technology and fire/life safety in tunnels.

SOLVENT was developed jointly by Parson Brinckerhoff's Tunnel Ventilation Division and Innovative Research, Inc., leaders in their respective fields of tunnel ventilation and CFD. The program would not have been possible without the support of the Central Artery Tunnel Project, the Massachusetts Highway Department and the Federal Highway Administration.
