Air speeds induced by mechanical ventilation systems in the occupied zone are studied experimentally in seven railway stations in Hong Kong. Values of air speed at different positions are measured. From these values, air speed contours and turbulence intensities are calculated. Macroscopic numbers describing airflow in a space including the Reynolds number and the jet momentum number are estimated and their potential uses are discussed.
