In view of the fact that virtually no quantitative information is available regarding the airflow properties of subway vent shafts and stations, DSI-AT has undertaken the study of these properties and the design and construction of a unique test facility to obtain this missing, yet crucial data. The VST facility will supply the information required to characterize the airflow properties in subway vent shafts, transition sections, and stations in terms of rational parameters. These experimentally determined parameters will serve both as critical experimental inputs for the theoretical computer analysis and to provide needed guidance for effective experimental work in DSI-AT's subway aerodynamic test (SAT) facility.
