COMPARISONS OF COMPUTER MODEL PREDICTIONS AND FIELD MEASUREMENTS OF SUBWAY ENVIRONMENT IN THE MONTREAL METRO

This technical report has been prepared under the Transit Development Corporation (TDC) project 'Ventilation and Environmental Control in Subway Rapid Transit Systems.' This report describes a series of field tests conducted in the Montreal METRO system for the purpose of validating the Subway Environment Simulation (SES) Computer Program developed pursuant to the TDC project. The report also presents direct comparisons of experiment and theory, demonstrating the applicability of the SES computer program to full scale, multiple-track, bi-directional rapid transit systems.
