About the Project

Ventilation systems in underground stations and tunnels consumes significant amount of energy. A large number of stations still suffer from very high temperatures resulting in very uncomfortable conditions in hot weather seasons. The research aims to investigate the potential use of energy efficient natural ventilation methods in the underground environment to improve the air conditions in underground stations. The proposed research will be carried out with the use of Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) to simulate the underground station environment with the possibility of carrying out experimental work.
