The measurement of pressure fluctuations on the London Transport Victoria Line is described and results are presented in sufficient detail for accurate comparisons to be made with theoretical models. Measurements were obtained during the night-time shut-down period, and so complicating effects due to other trains are absent. The results give a clear indication of the relative importance of several events such as entry to and exit from a station. The effectiveness of cross-passages for draught… CONTINUE READING
