AERODYNAMIC TESTING TECHNIQUE FOR SCALE MODEL SUBWAY VENT SHAFTS AND STATIONS

Describes a 1/16-scale model test (VST) facility designed, built and operated for the purpose of studying the aerodynamic characteristics of subway vent shafts and stations. The VST facility is a steady-state test facility, where geometrically realistic scale model subway components are tested and evaluated. The fluid mechanic behavior of the vent shafts and stations is characterized in terms of driving potential, impedances and geometry. A detailed description of the VST facility, a discussion of the measurements and an example of a vent shaft test are presented and compared to analytical predictions.
