  • Optimization of the behaviour of high-speed railway tracks using a genetic
           algorithm approach
    • Authors: Rodrigues, A. F; Dimitrovova, Z.
      Pages: 345 - 363
      Abstract: This paper deals with a multi-objective optimization of geometrical and mechanical properties of a high-speed railway track when subjected to a moving load representative of a train axle. The model of the track employs several simplifications; it was implemented in two dimensions on the explicit dynamics module LS-DYNA for the finite element commercial software ANSYS. The design space is formed by the ballast height and by parameters representing the dynamic properties of the rail-pads. The objective function covers minimization of the maximum ascending and descending displacement and velocity in the main structural elements, namely the rail, the sleepers and the ballast. A genetic algorithm implementation is used to optimize these functions, which proved to be effective in finding quasi-optimal solutions with a low search effort. The tools presented can give insight into how the behaviour of the railway track is influenced by various design parameters.

  • Dynamics of a vehicle-track coupling system at a rail joint
    • Authors: Grossoni, I; Iwnicki, S, Bezin, Y, Gong, C.
      Pages: 364 - 374
      Abstract: The dynamic behaviour at a rail joint is examined using a two-dimensional vehicle–track coupling model. The track system is described as a finite-length beam resting on a double-layer discrete viscous-elastic foundation. The vehicle is represented by a half car body and a single bogie. The influence of the number of layers considered, the number of elements between two sleepers, and the beam model is investigated. Parametric studies, both of the coupling model and the analytic formulae, are carried out in order to understand the influence of the main track and vehicle parameters on the P1 and P2 peak forces. Finally, the results in terms of P2 force from the proposed model are compared, not only with measured values but also with other simulated and analytical solutions. An excellent agreement between these values is found.

  • Steady-state response of a curved beam on a viscously damped foundation
           subjected to a sequence of moving loads
    • Authors: Dai, J; Ang, K. K.
      Pages: 375 - 394
      Abstract: In this paper, an analytical solution to the steady-state response of a curved beam resting on a viscously damped foundation and subjected to a single or sequence of moving loads is presented. Trigonometric functions are employed as the trial functions in approximating the displacement of the curved beam. The accuracy of the solution is gauged through comparison against available analytical results in the literature. To further examine the accuracy of the proposed analytical method, a computational study of the problem was carried out using the moving element method based on piecewise straight beam elements. Excellent agreement is found between all these results.

  • Theoretical and experimental analyses on stabilization of hunting motion
           by utilizing the traction motor as a passive gyroscopic damper
    • Authors: Yoshino, H; Hosoya, T, Yabuno, H, Lin, S, Suda, Y.
      Pages: 395 - 401
      Abstract: The wheelset on a railway vehicle experiences the problem of hunting motion, the onset of which occurs when travelling above the associated critical speed. This is known as a flutter-type self-excited oscillation resulting from non-conservative contact forces acting between the wheels and rails. Traditional methods for preventing hunting motion while running on a straight rail include using bolsters, yaw dampers, or stiffer supports. However, these methods decrease the running performance on a curved rail. To enhance the running performance on both straight and curved rails, we propose using a gyroscopic damper. Until now, a gyroscopic damper has been theoretically and experimentally shown to increase the critical speed for hunting motion. This control method does not need state feedback control, but is not a passive control method, because the gyroscope is rotated by an additional actuator provided separately from the traction motor. In practice, the weight increase from the additional actuator has been a problem in applying this control method. In this study, using the traction motor itself as a passive gyroscopic damper, a new stabilization control mechanism is proposed that eliminates the need for an additional actuator to rotate the gyroscope. An analytical model of a single railway vehicle wheelset was introduced at a scale corresponding to the experimental equipment. From the eigenvalue analysis, it was found that the critical speed increased with an increase in the rotor speed of the gyroscopic damper. Experiments were conducted using a simple apparatus consisting of a roller rig and a two-degree-of-freedom wheelset with a gyroscopic damper that has a mechanism equivalent to what is proposed. The results experimentally validate the proposed passive gyroscopic damper for the stabilization of hunting motion.

  • Investigating railway track asset management using a Markov analysis
    • Authors: Prescott, D; Andrews, J.
      Pages: 402 - 416
      Abstract: A railway track asset management strategy must ensure that the condition of the track stays at an acceptable level, ensuring passenger comfort and safety. The determination of an efficient and effective strategy is a complex problem that requires consideration of the interrelated processes of deterioration, inspection, maintenance and renewal. Railway traffic causes the track’s geometry to deteriorate through time. When the track’s geometry has been assessed and seen to have deteriorated, maintenance is scheduled to restore the track’s geometry using a tamping machine. Tamping involves lifting the track to the required position before inserting vibrating tines into the ballast either side of the sleepers and using them to pack the ballast below. This process causes damage to the ballast, causing a relative acceleration in future track geometry deterioration and decreasing the time between subsequent maintenance interventions. This paper describes a Markov model that can be used to investigate the asset management strategy applied to a railway track section. The model predicts the way that the track section’s condition changes with time for a given asset management strategy, which is defined through the specification of a number of model parameters. The model is applied to a track section with a specified maintenance strategy and is used to investigate the track’s performance for that strategy. Parameters corresponding to asset management decisions that relate to inspection, maintenance and renewal are then changed in order to illustrate the effects of the decisions on the track’s life cycle. The Markov model provides a simple yet powerful means of investigating the effects of an asset management strategy on a railway track section.

  • Resolving operational parameters for a change-step type of maglev
           propulsion system
    • Authors: Tseng; W.-T.
      Pages: 417 - 427
      Abstract: The propulsion principle of the Transrapid maglev train is based on long stator linear synchronous motors. The stator winding in the guideway is divided into multiple segments that are individually switched on or off, with power being supplied to a given segment only as it is passed by the train. In commercial operation the power from substations is connected to the stator segments in one of two ways: change-step connection or three-step connection. Although each type of power supply has its advantages and application scope, the change-step connection is the central topic of interest in this study due to its salient features. When the train’s propulsion system uses this supply mode, the inverter control systems at the power stations must know exactly when the stator current begins to decline and the stator segment that it is supplying is about to change. Therefore, the timings to adjust the stator current are crucial to the operating system of a Transrapid train and should be determined from the dynamic conditions of the train. This paper aims to determine the timings for controlling the stator current. Based on calculated results, it is concluded that changing the power supply between stator sections can be smoothly performed using the proposed propulsion control system.

  • The use of the PCT index in railway motion sickness incidence evaluation
    • Authors: Braccesi, C; Cianetti, F, Scaletta, R.
      Pages: 428 - 445
      Abstract: The aim of this paper is to define an evaluation method to quantify the index of motion sickness incidence (MSI) in railway motion conditions. This index is widely used in the literature to quantify illness symptoms that occur as a result of generic low-frequency motions (kinetosis). In fact, only one standard exists (ISO 2631) and it was defined for general motion and in particular for vertical acceleration motion conditions. No standards have been written that consider the conditions experienced in railway motion. This paper reports an evaluation approach that can be used to examine illness symptoms experienced during rail trips and involves indices and methods well-known in the rail industry. In particular the proposed approach involves the P ct index (EN 12299: Comfort index on curve transition) and some weighting curves for the filtering of accelerometer signals that are also specified in railway regulations (EN 12299, ISO 2631). The proposed method, that is consistent with a theoretical model that has been reported in the literature, allows the MSI index to be obtained as a function of travel time and/or track distance. The model is validated through a comparison with experimental data available in literature and with experimental data recorded for a tilting train during tests performed in Slovenia.

  • Energy-efficient train control in urban rail transit systems
    • Authors: Su, S; Tang, T, Chen, L, Liu, B.
      Pages: 446 - 454
      Abstract: With the latest developments in technology, the Automatic Train Operation (ATO) has been widely used in urban rail transit systems over the past decade. The control process used by the ATO system generally consists of two levels. The high-level control calculates the target speed according to the moving authority of the trains and the low-level control implements precise tracking on the target speed by controlling the traction and braking force. Most of the literature has only focused on the high-level control to optimize the train trajectory, but did not practically combine the low-level control of the ATO system. When the optimized trajectory is applied as the target speed, it will cause frequent switches between acceleration and braking for precise tracking and waste a lot of energy. Hence, this previous research may not be applied to practical ATO systems. In this paper, a numerical algorithm is proposed to solve the energy-ecient train control problem with a given trip time by distributing the reverse time to dierent segments. Then a method is presented for optimization of target speeds based on the ATO control principles, which guides the train to output optimized control sequences. The proposed approach is capable of avoiding the unnecessary switching and then eciently reduces the traction energy consumption of the train switches. Furthermore, case studies have been undertaken based on infrastructure data from the Beijing Yizhuang rail transit line, and the simulation results illustrate that the proposed approach results in good performance with regards to energy saving.
