Fires in road tunnels to this day remain a high-risk factor and are still the subject of intensive engineering research. For existing and under construction automobile tunnels in Georgia, the total number of which in the near future will be more than fifty, the only risk factor is a fire. Not looking at the modern methods of designing underground tunnels, which aims to maximize the consideration of fire risk factors, the problem remains unresolved for the existing network of road tunnels, to which great attention and financial resources are directed [1, 2]. After the powerful fires that have occurred in developed western countries, the European Union pays special attention to the Trans-European Network, which is a top priority for the safety of existing and under construction tunnels.
