THE AERODYNAMICS AND VENTILATION OF VEHICLE TUNNELS - A STATE OF THE ART REVIEW AND BIBLIOGRAPHY

The publication presents a state of the art review and bibliography on the aerodynamics and ventilation of road and rail tunnels, and also of underground rapid transit systems. The review discusses the subject in the following sections: road tunnels - the nature of the problem; effects of air pollution; the quantity of air required for efficient road tunnel ventilation; systems of road tunnel ventilation; instrumentation and control; planning of ventilation stations; economic considerations. Rail tunnels and rapid transit systems underground - classification of tunnel systems; the thermal environment; the pressure and environment for both main line tunnels and RTSU; air quality in both main-line tunnels and RTSU; tunnel exit noise and vibration; possible future tube vehicle systems. The bibliography contains details of 588 publications in four sections: (a) general and related references; (b) road tunnels; (C) motor vehicle exhaust emission, and (D) rail tunnels and other tube-vehicle systems. Two indexes to the bibliography are provided, the first by subject, tunnel name and country and the second by author. /TRRL/
