Madrid, april 2021. This study is part of the consulting and technical assistance services for the drafting of the construction projects for the improvement of the ventilation conditions in case of fire of the stations of Getafe centro, Embajadores and Parla stations. This study has been carried out by Inserail-TEKIA Joint Venture.
The objective of this study has been to assess the current conditions of ventilation and evacuation of passengers from the underground stations of Cercanías de Embajadores, Getafe Centro and Parla since taking into account their age, these infrastructures do not meet the safety standards applicable today. . Now begins the next phase in which the improvements to be made will be proposed according to the results that have been obtained.
To carry out the study, simulation tools have been used that integrate the results of the evolution of a fire (CFD) on the platform with the movement of people so that the behavior of users is affected by the smoke produced. The video shows the simulation of the Getafe station that allows us to evaluate the evacuation conditions of the station in case of fire to, based on the results obtained, propose solutions that improve it.
TEKIA is an expert in tunnel safety and has worked on more than 100 ventilation projects around the world, both in road and railway tunnels.
