Abstract
THE PROJECT WILL ADOPT EXISTING SENSOR AND ELECTRICAL CONTROL TECHNOLOGY AND EQUIPMENT TO SENSE CHANGES IN ENVIRONMENTAL FACTORS THAT MIGHT BE DETRIMENTAL TO PERSONNEL AND EQUIPMENT IN DEEP UNDERGROUND TUNNEL COMPLEXES. BASED UPON LIMITING CONDITIONS SET INTO CONTROL SYSTEM COMPUTER PROGRAM, THE SENSOR SIGNALS WILL AUTOMATICALLY CLOSE OFF THE TUNNEL COMPLEX FROM ABOVE GROUND ENVIRONMENTS OR ISOLATE SEGMENTS OF THE TUNNEL COMPLEX TO PRECLUDE THE UNDESIRABLE SPREADING OF ADVERSE EFFECTS. THE CONTROL SYSTEM WILL BE MANUALLY REVERSIBLE AND WILL PERMIT MULTIPLE OPENINGS AND CLOSINGS OF THE CLOSURE MECHANISM. THE CLOSURES WILL CONSIST OF TWO DOOR PANELS, THAT OPERATE LIKE A GUILLOTINE, EACH CAPABLE OF CLOSING OFF THE TUNNEL INDEPENDENTLY.
