VENT AND STATION TEST (VST) FACILITY. VENT SHAFT TESTING
The report has been prepared under the Institute for Rapid Transit (IRT) project, one of many reports leading to a final product--the 'Subway Environmental Design Handbook'. The purpose of this particular report is to present, describe, and interpret the quantity of test data generated in the VST Facility for vent shafts. Junction coefficients for a wide range of vent shafts are presented and compared to theory. Recommendations are made.
