Paper Title:
Comparison on Simulation and Experiment of Supply Air through Metro Vehicle Air Conditioning Duct
  Abstract

CFD technique is often employed to simulate and optimize air duct design, but the corresponding experiment validation in metro vehicle is rare. By taking an independent metro vehicle duct as research object in this paper, supply air through air duct is simulated and compared with the actual test results from the angle of supply air velocity at each outlet and supply air volume through several outlets of air duct. The results show that the relative deviation of simulation and test value of air velocity at most of the outlets are within or near ±20%, which is acceptable for the engineering applications. Moreover, the ratio of supply air volume through several outlets to the corresponding total supply air volume through main air duct or flat duct in the case of simulation is consistent with that in the case of experiment. It can be concluded that numerical simulation method is effective and reliable in air duct optimization design of metro vehicle.
