Binyaney Ha'uma Railway Station and Tunnel
Submission by: Alex Kline, Rolf Jensen & Associates
The Binyaney Ha`uma Railway Station and Tunnel is the underground portion of a commuter subway system that will connect Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, Israel.
The tunnel is approximately 1 mile long and terminates at the passenger station which will be located approximately 200 feet below the streets of Jerusalem.
RJA provided fire modeling services for the entire railway station and tunnel to assess the impact a train fire developing in either the station or tunnel on the proposed smoke control system.
NOTE: RJA has become Jensen Hughes since this post was made in 2010.
