Default Effects of a moving train to people in a tunnel

My upcoming research topic is to study on the effects of a moving subway train to the people stading in the tunnel plaform.

I'd like to know weather the FLUENT can simulate this problem (dynamic mesh? or sliding mesh?). And please let me know available related reference materials (experimental, numerical, CFD, full scale measurements, etc).

When a train enters into a tunnel, it reduces speed and pass through it or stops for passangers. My study will focus on the train induced wind effects on the people in the tunnel platform.

Could you please let me know which of his works are related to this topic?
