  • An angle of attack-based derailment criterion for wheel flange climbing
    • Authors: Guan, Q; Zeng, J, Jin, X.
      Pages: 719 - 729
      Abstract: A three-dimensional equilibrium model of a wheelset is created that takes the geometrical contact and non-linear creep force between the wheel and rail into account. This model can thus be used to study derailment conditions during flange climbing. To ensure the validity of Nadal’s criterion at small and negative angles of attack, the effects of the angle of attack and friction coefficient on an "equivalent friction coefficient", which is defined as the ratio of the lateral creep force to the normal force, are studied. Using the results of the wheelset equilibrium equation, two curve-fitted formulas for the equivalent friction coefficient are generated in terms of the angle of attack and friction coefficient using, respectively, the Shen–Hedrick–Elkins creep theory and FASTSIM approach. A derailment criterion is proposed based on the curve-fitted equivalent friction coefficients, which takes the angle of attack, friction coefficient and contact angle into consideration. The effectiveness of the proposed criterion is verified through numerical comparisons with wheelset equilibrium equations for different contact angles and friction coefficients, and through experimental comparisons with scaled tests made by Japanese National Railways and full-scale field testing at the Transportation Technology Center, Inc.

  • Analysis of train/turnout vertical interaction using a fast numerical
           model and validation of that model
    • Authors: Wan, C; Markine, V. L, Shevtsov, I. Y.
      Pages: 730 - 743
      Abstract: A two-dimensional (2D) finite element model has been developed for simulation and analysis of train/turnout vertical dynamic interactions at a common crossing. The model has been validated through field measurements and simulation results obtained using a three-dimensional (3D) multi-body system (MBS) model. The dynamic behaviour of three turnouts on the Dutch railway network was simulated using the 2D model. The simulation results were compared with measured data collected from the instrumented crossings containing corresponding turnouts. It was observed that the values of the vertical acceleration of the crossing nose obtained from the simulations were in good agreement with the measured values. The 2D model was verified by adapting the more intricate 3D MBS model established in the VI-Rail software. The vertical geometry of the rail used in the 2D model was obtained using the wheel trajectory from the 3D model. It was observed that the dynamic wheel forces in the two models were close to one another. From these results it was concluded that the 2D model is able to simulate train/turnout interactions with a good accuracy and thus it can be used instead of complex time-consuming numerical simulations.

  • Multimode dynamic response of railway bridge superstructures to high-speed
           train loads
    • Authors: Norton, T. R; Lashgari, M, Mohseni, M.
      Pages: 744 - 758
      Abstract: High-speed passenger trains can cause destructive vibrations on bridge structures. The possibility of resonance is particularly related to the bridge superstructure’s natural frequency and the frequency of moving loads, which is characterized by the train type and its speed. In this study, a multimode dynamic analysis has been performed for a variety of superstructures, span lengths, train speeds and train types. Numerical analysis has been applied to evaluate different girder support conditions such as simple, two-span continuous and three-span continuous. In addition, the train/structure interaction is included in the analytical models. The results are presented in terms of moment dynamic load factors for a practical range of the superstructure’s fundamental frequency, which include various superstructure types such as concrete, prestressed concrete and steel. Different high-speed trains are considered moving at various speeds to capture the configuration for highest responses. This study provides a set of diagrams for initial estimation of high-speed railroad bridge bending moment response. Proposed diagrams will help bridge designers to avoid an uneconomic bridge system in early design stages.

  • Prediction of the maximum air velocities created by metro trains using an
           artificial neural network approach
    • Authors: Koc, G; Sert, C, Albayrak, K.
      Pages: 759 - 767
      Abstract: The maximum air velocity created by a moving train inside a tunnel is obtained using an artificial neural network approach. A neural network model is developed to represent a single train travelling in a single tunnel. A set of non-dimensional groups, which are known to influence the induced flow characteristics, is used for the training of the neural network. Various test runs are compared with the results of the authoritative software, Subway Environmental Simulation. The presence of ventilation shafts within a tunnel is included in the model by defining an aerodynamically equivalent single tunnel using major head loss characteristics of different parts of the system. This approach eliminated the requirement to train the neural network for a large number of possible tunnel/shaft configurations.

  • The effect of friction modifiers on wheel/rail isolation at low axle loads
    • Authors: Hardwick, C; Lewis, S, Lewis, R.
      Pages: 768 - 783
      Abstract: Signalling block occupancy is triggered by the wheelset of a rail vehicle ‘shunting’ the track circuit. The main cause of loss of shunting is the many materials that can be present on the rail head. These include iron oxides, leaves, ballast dust, oil, as well as products deliberately applied to the rail/wheel such as grease, friction modifiers, lubricants and sand. These may lead to an indication that a signal block is unoccupied when a train is actually present. Friction modifiers (FMs) are being increasingly used for reduction of noise, lateral forces, wear, rolling contact fatigue, etc. The Kelsan® high positive friction (HPF) solid stick FM is applied directly to the wheel tread creating a thin film. Although no effects have been observed during field operation, the intention in this work was to build on previous studies and evaluate conductance across a wider range of contact conditions as studies have shown that loss of shunt is more common with light axle loads where films could have a greater effect. The testing was performed at a contact pressure of 470 MPa (equating to a 4.9 tonne axle load). An HPF stick was spring loaded against the rotating wheel disc to generate a FM film at the contact. Tests were run to measure the impedance across the discs using a modified TI21 track circuit. Static testing was also performed using discs with a pre-generated HPF film. Analysis of the results showed that the application of HPF friction modifier had no significant effect on the measured level of impedance. The highest impedance levels were recorded under pure rolling (0% slip) where FMs were not being applied. In cases where the application of FM increased impedance, the recorded impedance values were still lower than the highest values measured in the absence of a FM. This is of key relevance as several light rail operators coast their trains.

  • A novel framework for supporting the design of moving block train control
           system schemes
    • Authors: Wang, H; Tang, T, Roberts, C, Gao, C, Chen, L, Schmid, F.
      Pages: 784 - 793
      Abstract: A moving block philosophy is increasingly being implemented as part of communications-based train control (CBTC) systems in mass transit operations. Due to its complexity and safety criticality, it is difficult to develop formal methods to support the design of specific schemes. An innovative framework, based on topology mathematics, for supporting CBTC moving block system development is proposed in this paper. Within the new framework, the moving block train control logic is transformed into topological spaces representing the movement authority for trains. Using this approach, the verification of logic and safety properties can be performed by automatic assessment of the topological space. Within the paper the essential characteristics of moving block systems, train behaviour and static track-side infrastructure are analysed. As a result of this analysis, topological units are formed to represent train movement trajectory and standard railway network elements. Four calculation methods: dividing, trimming, covering and integrating, are described as standard unit operations. Finally, a case study is implemented to demonstrate how the method is advantageous for CBTC scheme layout development. It is found that the approach is able to bridge the gap between traditional, highly abstracted, formal methods and the specific safety-critical railway scheme designs.

  • Automated visual inspection of angle cocks during train operation
    • Authors: Zhou, F; Zou, R, Qiu, Y, Gao, H.
      Pages: 794 - 806
      Abstract: Fault inspection is a key part of ensuring safe operation of freight trains. The development of machine vision technology has resulted in vision-based fault inspection becoming the principal means of fault inspection. An angle cock is an important component in the brake system, and a fault in it could lead to a serious accident. In this paper, we propose an automated vision method to inspect for missing handles on an angle cock during operation of a freight train. Images of the angle cock are acquired and they are analyzed using a proposed gradient encoding histogram and support vector machine that combine to create a detection system. Experimental results show that we achieved a fault detection rate of 99.8% using the proposed system, which represents a good real-time performance and high detection accuracy.

  • New proposal for bogie-mounted sensors using energy harvesting and
           wireless communications
    • Authors: Ortiz, J; Monje, P. M, Zabala, N, Arsuaga, M, Etxaniz, J, Aranguren, G.
      Pages: 807 - 820
      Abstract: The goal of the research presented in this paper is to design and incorporate new technologies into railway bogie-mounted sensors. It is often impossible to connect the mounted systems to physical wires due to their location in an inaccessible position or the distance to the energy source. Therefore, another power source must be used to solve this problem. Energy harvesting technology is an increasingly popular solution that extracts energy from the ambient environment and transforms it into electrical energy. Using piezoelectric transducers, it is possible to transform the vibrations experienced by the bogie into energy that can be used to power the sensors. A prototype with multiple piezoelectric transducers has been designed, built and subjected to tests to validate the technology. The experimental results for all of the different configurations tested and levels of energy collected are presented.

  • Tunnel gradients and aural health criterion for train passengers
    • Authors: Palmero, N. M; Vardy, A.
      Pages: 821 - 832
      Abstract: An inconvenient consequence of the UIC health and safety criterion for allowable pressure changes in railway tunnels is highlighted. It is shown that the criterion limits allowable speeds in long tunnels with large changes of elevation much more than it does in equivalent tunnels with small changes in elevation. The constraint is especially strong for trains travelling uphill, but it can also exist for trains travelling downhill. Possible ways of avoiding the problem without reducing speed are considered and are found to be practicable in some cases. However, they are of uncertain suitability because they rely on exploiting a particular feature of the safety criterion in a manner that is unlikely to have been intended when it was mandated. In addition, attention is drawn to an ambiguity inherent in the application of the criterion to certain types of tunnel. Suggestions are made for simple modifications to the criterion and comparisons are made with conditions experienced routinely in commercial aviation.
