THE AERODYNAMIC EFFECTS OF HIGH-SPEED TRAINS ON PEOPLE AND PROPERTY AT STATIONS IN THE NORTHEAST CORRIDOR.

This report presents the results of a study to evaluate the aerodynamic (air velocity and pressure) effects of the new high-speed trains on the safety and comfort of people and the impacts on physical facilities in and around Northeast Corridor stations. This report focuses particularly on the effects at "non-express-stop" stations, i.e., stations where the trains are not scheduled to stop and will thus pass the stations at potentially higher speeds than current operations.
