RESEARCH INTO TRAIN WIND GENERATED IN SUBWAY LINE NO. 12 WITH SMALL CROSS-SECTION

Subway Line No. 12 is one of the 13 proposed lines of the urban rapid transit network in Tokyo and consists of circular and radial sections totalling around 38.9km. In tunnel design, the smallest cross-section is to be adopted so as to attain the greatest savings in construction and operation costs. The wind generated by trains in these small tunnels could be stronger than normal and so measures must be taken to predict the wind speed and its effect.
