SUBWAY ENVIRONMENTAL DESIGN HANDBOOK. VOLUME II. SUBWAY ENVIRONMENT SIMULATION COMPUTER PROGRAM (SES). PART 1. USER'S MANUAL

This document forms part of the Subway Environmental Design Handbook. It contains the background information and instructions to enable an engineer to perform an analysis of a subway system by using the Subway Environment Simulation (SES) computer program. The SES program is a designer-oriented tool which provides estimates of the airflow, temperature, and humidity characteristics, as well as the air-conditioning requirements, for both operating and proposed multiple-track subway systems of any given design and operating characteristics. The SES program can be used to evaluate the impact on the subway environment of alternative subway system design parameters such as tunnel and station cross-sectional area and length, tunnel interconnections, location and size of ventilation shafts and passenger entrances, ventilation fans, train headway and operating speed, and other parameters. The SES program is a numerical simulation model which incorporates the results of theoretical research, scale-model tests and field tests, and has been verified through comparisons with measurements taken in operating subway systems.
