    A control scheme for highway tunnels is proposed based on a static model of the highway tunnel. The controller is designed to keep the exhaust levels inside the tunnel below given limits. The controller is derived in two stages. First, a controller for an isolated ventilation section is found. Then a controller for a complex tunnel is obtained and the control is optimized by means of linear programming. The control is then simulated on a dynamical model of a highway tunnel.
