EXPERIMENTAL STUDY ON AERODYNAMICS OF TRAINS TRAVELING AT HIGH SPEEDS

ETUDES EXPERIMENTALES SUR L'AERODYNAMIQUE DES TRAINS CIRCULANT A GRANDE VITESSE

The aerodynamics of high speed trains, particularly for different traffic flow patterns at crossings, in tunnels, or in open were studied. Results show the steady and unsteady pressure forces on walls, the stresses on bodies in proximity to the train path, and pressure fluctuations in tunnels. Some of the results are verified by calculations involving a theoretical model.
