HPC-Based Engineering Design for Control of

Smoke in Subway Tunnels

Explore how advanced HPC technology revolutionized smoke control in subway tunnels through CFD simulations.

In the ever-evolving landscape of urban transportation, safety remains paramount. The AENEAS Project, a joint effort by ENGYS, Tecnosistem and CINECA, sets out to tackle a pressing issue – smoke control in subway tunnels. With a staggering 500 lives lost in subway tunnel fires between 1987 and 2003, a transformative solution was essential. Traditional 1D and 3D simplified CFD tools, while commonly used by engineers and safety experts, have shown limitations in delivering accurate and reliable results due to inherent assumptions. 


This webinar delves into the heart of the challenge, illuminating today’s smoke control strategies for train fires in line tunnels, and their potential shortcomings in ensuring optimal tenability conditions. The AENEAS experiment emerges as a beacon of innovation, striving to create a cost-effective streamlined workflow powered by 3D high-fidelity CFD simulations via on-demand HPC resources.


Key Highlights:

• The Problem: Unveiling Smoke Control Challenges

• The AENEAS Experiment Approach: A Revolutionary Solution

• Technical Achievements and Operational Benefits

• Empowering TECNOSISTEM for Future Growth
