High speed railway can transport large quantity of people and commodities in a short time and has become one of the most desirable and environmentally friendly transportation. However, it is hard to have a complicated route for high speed railways, construction of tunnels is essential to pass through a mountain area. When a high speed train enters a tunnel, pressure wave is created in a tunnel and the wave causes micro pressure wave and discomfort to passengers. In order to alleviate pressure wave in a tunnel, constructing a vertical shaft is one of the most efficient ways. This study represents a numerical analysis module, which takes into account the effect of a vertical shaft in a tunnel. The module can be used in a numerical program (TTMA) specialized for aerodynamics in a tunnel, and it was validated by comparing numerical results with various measurements in Emmequerung tunnel and results from numerical analysis using Fluent.
