Wind Tunnel Tests Main Station Salzburg

Salzburg, Austria

Services: 
Wind channel tests and computer based simulations
Project type: 
Competence Center: 
CC Building monitoring

Because of the Schengen Agreement and internal targets the Main Station Salzburg had to be extended as a transit station and TEN-junction. Therefore a complete modification of the station, considering the listed areas, the terminal building and the existing hall, was necessary.
Due to the architectural construction style of the platform canopy and particular specifications for the comfort of passengers it was necessary to perform an extensive wind tunnel test campaign. Among others the results of those tests should be incorporated into the structural design procedure.
Furthermore the wind comfort conditions in the subsurface passage and the smoke venting system should be enhanced based on complex Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) Analyses.
