Two possible contributory causes of the lack of agreement between predicted and measured pressure histories in railway tunnels are investigated. It is shown that non-uniformity of velocity distributions at a cross-section can greatly influence the steady component of air flows alongside trains. The unsteady component is less sensitive to the velocity distribution, but it may be strongly influenced by the dependence of skin friction on accelerations.
