Transient Numerical Simulation for Air Distribution of Air Conditioning and Ventilation in Subway Island-Platform
The typical subway island-platform of Beijing as research object was present in the article. Taking two-equation turbulence model and giving boundary conditions of piston wind and train heat load change with the time, adopting numerical method simulates air distribution of air-conditioning and ventilation system in subway. The results indicate that piston wind effect has significant impact on the area of platform entrance and staircase entrance while station with safety doors can obstruct piston effect at a certain degree. Simultaneity, the supply- exhaust air system offers relatively uniform temperature and velocity field, which meets requirements of transitory comfort for passengers. It is found that numerical simulation method can simulate and forecast air distribution of air conditioning and ventilating system in subway station. In conclusion, it can provide the reference for optimizing air-conditioning and ventilation system, improving thermal environment designing of subway station.
