THE AERODYNAMICS AND THERMODYNAMICS OF SUBWAY DESIGN CONCEPTS

This report is one of many such reports leading to the final product -- a 'Subway Environmental Design Handbook.' Subway environment simulation (SES) computer program applications to a variety of hypothetical double-track subway rapid transit systems with bi-directional train operations are presented and discussed. The study encompasses the effects of subway geometrical features, such as ventilation shaft configuration and location, mechanical systems, such as fans and cooling equipment, and train operations. Results are presented in terms of both instantaneous and average subway air flows and temperatures.
