Hagerbach Test Gallery Ltd. is a 100% private research and development provider located in the east of Switzerland. With a unique gallery net with a dimension of 5 km and two geo-logical units, one area of limestone and one area of slate, and a fire gallery of about 250 m length VSH Hagerbach TestGallery Ltd. is able to execute a wide range of experiments for underground constructions. Therefore costumers of various countries come to the gallery, in order to expand their know-how. Blazing flames and hot air welcomed in 2007 Slovakian and Israeli fire brigade at VSH fire fighter training field for stree tand railway tunnels The expert knowledge in large scale fire tests of tunnel equipment was used to test the behaviour of sealings for segmentallinings. Even under high temperatures of more than 1’000°Cin the tunnel the temperatures at the level of the rubber sealing remained at a low level. For a running tunnel construction site, tests were done, in order to investigate the noise transmission due to blastingwork through the rock. The investigation was necessary to enhance the well being of the neighbourhood of the construction site. To protect bentonit sealing a concrete with low-ph-value was applied under real scale conditions.

The EU founded project L-surf (Large Scale UndergroundResearch Facility for safety and security; www.lsurf.org) prepared the integration of further partners into the project. Man, machine, method, material and Mother Nature melt to successful and integrated research at VSH Hagerbach Test Gallery Ltd. in 2007 again.
