  • The effect of temperature on railway rolling noise
    • Authors: Squicciarini, G; Thompson, D. J, Toward, M. G, Cottrell, R. A.
      Pages: 1777 - 1789
      Abstract: The stiffness and damping of railpads in a railway track are affected by changes in the temperature of the surrounding environment. This results in the rolling noise radiated by trains increasing as the temperature increases. This paper quantifies this effect for a ballasted track equipped with natural rubber railpads and also studies the behaviour of a cork-reinforced rubber railpad. By means of measurements in a temperature-controlled environment, it is shown that the shear modulus of the natural rubber increases by a factor of six when the temperature is reduced from 40 ℃ to –20 ℃. The loss factor increases from 0.15 at 40 ℃ to 0.65 at –20 ℃. The shear modulus of the cork-reinforced rubber increases by a factor of 10, and the loss factor shows the typical trend of transition between rubbery and glassy regions. The railpad stiffness estimated from decay rate measurements at different temperatures is shown to follow the same trend. Field measurements of the noise from passing trains are performed for temperatures between 0 ℃ and 35 ℃; they show an increase of about 3–4 dB. Similar results are obtained from predictions of noise using the measured dependence of pad stiffness.

  • Influence of under-chassis-suspended equipment on high-speed EMU trains
           and the design of suspension parameters
    • Authors: Gong, D; Zhou, J, Sun, W.
      Pages: 1790 - 1802
      Abstract: A numerical method for the calculation of the frequencies of vibration of a car body on a high-speed electric multiple unit train with under-chassis-suspended equipment is proposed. In addition, the design of the parameters of the suspension system for the equipment is presented; it is based on the principles of mode matching, transmissibility matching, and consideration of the optimal vibration of both car body and equipment. It is shown that by tuning the suspension stiffness, the first vertical bending frequency of the car body displays a frequency-hopping phenomenon. The first vertical bending frequency of the car body can be enhanced by optimizing the suspension parameters, so as to suppress the vibrations of both the car body and the suspended equipment.

  • Modeling and capacitance effect analysis of the cable traction network of
           an electrified railway
    • Authors: Guo, X; Li, Q, Xie, S, Wang, H, Yi, D, Zhou, F.
      Pages: 1803 - 1811
      Abstract: This paper models and analyzes the cable traction network (CTN) of a novel AC 110 kV-50 Hz cable traction power supply system (TPSS). First, we propose an equivalent model of the CTN that considers the charging current of the cables, in order to research the capacitance effect of the CTN. Then, three cases based on the novel TPSS are used to validate the proposed model, and to investigate the characteristics of the CTN. Simulation results show that the proposed model is effective in calculating both the charging current and the voltage on the cable system. Calculation results from case 2 show that the capacitance effect is mainly caused by the charging current flowing through the system's reactance, which consists of the reactance of the power system and the reactance of the main transformer. The reactance of the system, compensation coefficient and cable length can each influence the charging current and capacitance effect of the cable. Case 3 illustrates that the novel TPSS is very effective in supplying power and can greatly reduce the number of neutral sections; thus, it is suitable for application in future railway designs.

  • A computational procedure for prediction of ballasted track profile
           degradation under railway traffic loading
    • Authors: Nguyen, K; Villalmanzo, D. I, Goicolea, J. M, Gabaldon, F.
      Pages: 1812 - 1827
      Abstract: A computational procedure is developed in the present paper, allowing the prediction of the ballasted track profile degradation under railway traffic loading. In this procedure, an integration of the short-term and long-term mechanical processes of track deterioration is taken into account, using a track degradation model. This degradation model is incorporated into a finite element code where two modes of calculation are implemented: the "implicit mode" concerns the short-term track deterioration, in which the hypoplastic model is used for the ballast layer and the dynamic response to an instantaneous train axle passage is obtained to serve as input data for the "explicit mode", which concerns the simulation of long-term track deterioration, using the accumulation model for ballast layer. The whole procedure is illustrated on the prediction of the ballasted track profile degradation of a track section of 100 m. The results show a significant influence of the type of track geometry defects and the vehicle velocity on the evolution of track deterioration and the capability of the proposed procedure in reproducing the track profile degradation.

  • Assessment of sleeper support conditions using micro-tremor analysis
    • Authors: Lazarevic, L; Vuckovic, D, Popovic, Z.
      Pages: 1828 - 1841
      Abstract: An irregular geometry of the track can influence the safe passage of railway traffic. Therefore, maintenance activities on railways are mostly directed towards the correction of track geometry. It has been shown that unevenly supported and unsupported sleepers make major contributions to the effect of track geometry deterioration. In addition, irregular sleeper support conditions can contribute to ballast fouling, thus reducing its service life. Therefore, assessing the support conditions of the sleepers in a railway track is essential. This paper reviews methods that can be used for this purpose. Then, we propose a method for the assessment of sleeper support conditions and present results obtained in field investigations. The proposed method is based on sampling of the micro-tremor on sleepers and interpretation of obtained data. The obtained results prove that the proposed method is reliable and therefore usable in practice.

  • Computer vision system for detecting the loss of rail fastening nuts based
           on kernel two-dimensional principal component - two-dimensional principal
           component analysis and a support vector machine
    • Authors: Wang, L; Zhang, B, Wu, J, Xu, H, Chen, X, Na, W.
      Pages: 1842 - 1850
      Abstract: In most railway companies in China, the loss of nuts from rail fasteners is still found by visual inspections performed by maintenance workers; this approach cannot meet the continuing requirements to reduce maintenance costs and improve maintenance efficiency. In this paper, a computer vision system for detecting the loss of nuts from rail fasteners is proposed that is based on kernel two-dimensional principal component – two-dimensional principal component analysis (K2DPCA-2DPCA) and a support vector machine (SVM). The framework of this information-technology-based system is introduced, and the calculation method to find the positions where nuts are missing is also proposed. The K2DPCA-2DPCA feature extraction method and SVM used for feature classification in the computer vision system are described in detail. Finally, the combination of K2DPCA-2DPCA and SVM is compared with other feature extraction and feature classification methods in an experiment on the detection of the loss of nuts from rail fasteners. In this paper, it is found that the algorithm based on K2DPCA-2DPCA and a SVM is a better method for the computer vision system. It can identify the loss of nuts from a rail fastener with a high recognition rate and reach the maximum recognition rate using only a relatively small number of features. Furthermore, for the same number of training samples, the algorithm based on K2DPCA-2DPCA and SVM is also better than other algorithms for use in the computer vision system.

  • Three-dimensional random vibrations of a high-speed-train-bridge
           time-varying system with track irregularities
    • Authors: Zhu, Y; Li, X, Jin, Z.
      Pages: 1851 - 1876
      Abstract: Three-dimensional random vibrations of a high-speed-train–bridge time-varying system with track irregularities are studied in this paper. The rail irregularity is regarded as a random process. By extending the pseudo-excitation method, three kinds of rail irregularity are transformed into a pseudo load vector of the coupled system. A finite element model is used to describe the bridge and a spatial multi-body mass–spring–damping model is adopted to represent a moving railway car. Monte Carlo simulations are implemented to validate the presented method. A detailed case study on the train–bridge coupled system is conducted; it is focused on the effects of three kinds of rail irregularity on the stochastic characteristics of the dynamic responses of the system. The effect of randomness on the level of safety and the riding comfort created by the coupled system are also discussed. The results demonstrate that track irregularities may have a greater impact on the transverse response of the coupled system than on the vertical responses.

  • Analyzing the transition from single- to double-track railway lines with
           nonlinear regression analysis
    • Authors: Sogin, S. L; Lai, Y.-C, Dick, C. T, Barkan, C. P.
      Pages: 1877 - 1889
      Abstract: The demand for freight rail transportation in North America is anticipated to substantially increase in the foreseeable future. Additionally, government agencies seek to increase the speed and frequency of passenger trains operating on certain freight lines, further adding to demand for new railway capacity. The majority of the North American mainline railway network is single track with passing sidings for meets and passes. Expanding the infrastructure by constructing additional track is necessary to maintain network fluidity under increased rail traffic. The additional track can be constructed in phases over time, resulting in hybrid track configurations during the transition from purely single track to a double-track route. To plan this phased approach, there is a need to understand the incremental capacity benefit as a single-track route transitions to a two-main-track route in the context of shared passenger and freight train operations. Consequently, in this study, the Rail Traffic Controller software is used to simulate various hybrid track configurations. The simulations consider different operating conditions to capture the interaction between traffic volume, traffic composition and speed differences between train types. A nonlinear regression model is then developed to quantify the incremental capacity benefit of double-track construction through exponential delay–volume relationships. Adding sections of double track reduces train delay linearly under constant volume. This linear delay reduction yields a convex increase in capacity as double track is installed. These results allow railway practitioners to make more-informed decisions on the optimal strategy for incremental railway capacity upgrades.

  • Optimization of the suspension parameters of a rail vehicle based on a
           virtual prototype Kriging surrogate model
    • Authors: Yang, Y; Zeng, W, Qiu, W.-s, Wang, T.
      Pages: 1890 - 1898
      Abstract: The design and integration of suspension parameters directly affects the riding quality of a rail vehicle. This study is intended to develop an approach to the optimization of suspension parameters of rail vehicles based on a virtual prototype Kriging model. To construct the virtual prototype Kriging model, a virtual prototype model of a rail vehicle and its suspension system was established based on a vertical model for its dynamics and using virtual prototype software. A virtual prototype Kriging model of a rail vehicle based on riding quality was also proposed, in which the training sample was obtained as different combinations of suspension parameters using the virtual prototype and dynamics simulations based on the design of experiments method. On this basis, an optimization model of the suspension parameters was established, in which the objective function was the Kriging model of the riding quality index. The optimized combination of suspension parameters was determined using the Multi-Island Genetic Algorithm. The dynamics simulation results before and after optimization for different rail profiles indicated that the riding quality was significantly improved, which demonstrated the universality and effectiveness of this approach.

  • Effect of internal dynamic excitation of the traction system on the
           dynamic behavior of a high-speed train
    • Authors: Huang, G.-h; Zhou, N, Zhang, W.-h.
      Pages: 1899 - 1907
      Abstract: This study investigates the effect of an internal dynamic excitation of the traction system on the dynamic performance of a high-speed train. First, a dynamic model of the traction system is developed that considers various complex factors such as the time-varying stiffness of meshing teeth pairs and the gear transmission error. The internal exciting force of the gear is taken to be the result of multiplying its meshing stiffness by its transmission error. Then a multi-body dynamics model of the motor car that includes the driving system is established. Furthermore, a field experiment at a high-speed rail line is performed. Based on the test data, the dynamic characteristics of a high-speed train are analyzed. The obtained results show that the internal dynamic excitation of the traction system can significantly influence the vertical vibration of the frame and gearbox; however, it has little effect on their lateral vibration. The sampling frequency has a major effect on the vibration amplitude of the gearbox; frequency spectrum results show that when the train runs at a high speed, the main vibration frequencies of the gearbox are the meshing frequency and its harmonic frequencies. It is demonstrated that it is necessary to take the internal dynamic excitation into account when assessing the dynamic performance of the gear transmission system.

  • An analytical method to estimate the natural bending frequency of the
           spans of railway through truss bridges with steel-and-concrete composite
    • Authors: Siekierski; W.
      Pages: 1908 - 1918
      Abstract: The Eurocode 1 standard requires railway bridges to be checked against the hazard of resonance. To perform this task, the first natural bending frequency of a bridge span has to be computed. The analytical method based on the single-beam analogy is sufficiently accurate for simply supported beam-girder bridges. This paper proves the applicability of the method for through truss bridge spans with steel-and-concrete composite decks; this is despite the fact that the spans do not strictly comply with the assumptions of this method. The flexural stiffness of the bridge span is computed taking into account the joint action of the truss girders and the composite deck; the limited extent of span shear stiffness due to diagonal bracing is also considered. A uniform distribution of the span mass over the span length is assumed. The mass is computed based on geometrical characteristics of truss and deck members, taking into account gusset plates, stiffeners, connectors and fittings. The analytical method and finite element method are applied to find the natural frequencies of two through truss bridge spans with composite decks. Computed results are compared with frequencies recorded during bridge testing. Taking into consideration the joint action of the truss girders and the composite deck, as well as the limited shear stiffness provided by diagonal bracing, significantly improves the accuracy of the assessment provided by the analytical method. The natural bending frequencies computed for the two bridge spans fall within the range of 0.95–1.05 of the recorded values.
