THE NUMERICAL INVESTIGATION OF HIGH SPEED TRAIN-TUNNEL INTERACTION AT ENTRANCE AND EXIT
- 1 Yildiz Technical University, Turkey
In the study, the flow pattern due to the interaction between a high-speed train and the tunnel at the model scale was analyzed. Six different tunnel entry geometries were used variably for a single train speed. The most important issues as a condition of comfort in high speed trains are noise and vibration. In particular, flow-induced noise is triggered by pressure changes in the flow. For each geometry, the pressure changes at the tunnel entrance and at the tunnel exit are plotted with depending on time. As a result, the least amount of pressure change was found in the tunnel entrance model with openings in the side walls.
