Mark III aerodynamics

Definition of the aerodynamic force coefficients and the pressure distribution on the Mark III train with different scenario (flat ground, single track ballast and rail, etc…) and smooth flow conditions. Tests with turbulent flow conditions were conducted to evaluate the aerodynamic admittance functions.
