ENVIRONMENTAL CONTROL FOR THE CARACAS METRO

New subway systems, such as the proposed Metro de Caracas, will benefit from aerospace technology which has led to innovations in rapid transit vehicle designs. Increased amounts of kinetic energy in the form of heat through car-mounted resistor grids during the braking are included in design. Rates of heat release generated by train operation and car air-conditioning systems are described.
