    Aerodynamic design of HS2 tunnels

    The aerodynamic design of HS2 tunnels has been achieved through balancing the civils design with the specification of the required aerodynamic characteristics of the rolling stock, resulting in smaller, more economic tunnel cross-sectional areas than would be provided in other countries for the same line speeds. Issues considered include aural comfort and safety for passengers…
