The first chapter deals with the specific characteristics of the atmosphere in the metro: composition and physical parameters of the air, comfort as regards temperature, and includes a brief outline of the railway authorities objectives in this field. A table describes the air conditioning equipment, the urban metro and the regional metro. The means employed to improve the atmospheric conditions in the metro are presented in the third chapter: improvement in ventilation, reduction in heat dissipated in the tunnel, air conditioning of stations, metro lines, surge shafts, cleaning. Four appendices deal with: temperature control in the urban network, the technical construction of a ventilation plant, temperature curves for the railway lines, layout plans for the installation of ventilators and ventilation bays.
