Leitet Herunterladen der Datei ein Aero- and thermodynamics of tunnel systems

Major parts of modern, high-speed rail links are often built as tunnels. Because of the elevated train velocities, various aerodynamic phenomena occurring during train passage need to be considered for tunnel design. Additionally in long tunnels and in metro systems the tunnel climate might be an important issue for the tunnel design.
