  • Case study: Feature-based analysis of electric arc damage to railway
           signal cables
    • Authors: Yang, S; Chen, L, Roberts, C, Wang, X.
      Pages: 3 - 11
      Abstract: Signal cables on Chinese heavy haul railways are often observed to have been burnt and damaged; this can cause the failure of signalling systems and can lead to accidents. In this paper, a theoretical analysis and laboratory-based test bench experiments are presented to investigate the cause and mechanism of this burning phenomenon. First, a laboratory simulation test bench is designed, to test actual cables under man-made conditions and intermittent conduction between the iron trough and. steel armour The phenomenon reproduced in the test shows good consistency with field observations and data on voltage and current levels is recorded for testing validation. A quantitative analysis of this phenomenon is carried out using Cassie and Mayr arc models on a high-current area and a zero-point-crossing area, respectively, with a comparison of the calculated and measured data being subsequently performed. Based on the characteristics of the test results, it is verified that a possible cause is an electric arc. Finally, solutions to mitigate the phenomenon are proposed, based on the analysis of the mechanism of the creation of the electric arc and how it damages the signal cables.

  • Optimisation of maintenance track possession time: A tamping case study
    • Authors: Famurewa, S. M; Xin, T, Rantatalo, M, Kumar, U.
      Pages: 12 - 22
      Abstract: Optimum allocation and efficient utilisation of track possession time are becoming important topics in railway infrastructure management due to increasing capacity demands. This development and other requirements of modern infrastructure management necessitate the improvement of planning and scheduling of large-scale maintenance activities such as tamping. It is therefore necessary to develop short-, medium- and long-term plans for performing tamping on a network or track section within a definite time horizon. To this end, two key aspects of infrastructure maintenance planning are considered in this paper, deterioration modelling and scheduling optimisation. An exponential deterioration function is applied to model the geometry quality of a series of 200 m segments of a 130 km line section, and an empirical model for recovery after tamping intervention is developed. These two models are subsequently used to generate a methodology to optimise a schedule for tamping intervention by minimising the total cost of intervention including the cost of track possession while geometry quality is ascertained to be within a desirable limit. The modelling considers two types of tamping interventions, preventive and corrective, with different intervention limits and tamping machines. The result of this paper suggests a tamping plan which will lead to optimum allocation of track possession time while maintaining the track geometry quality within specified limits.

  • Probabilistic modeling of damage accumulation for time-dependent fatigue
           reliability analysis of railway axle steels
    • Authors: Zhu, S.-P; Huang, H.-Z, Li, Y, Liu, Y, Yang, Y.
      Pages: 23 - 33
      Abstract: From the viewpoint of engineering applications, the prediction of the failure of railway axles plays an important role in preventing the occurrence of fatigue fractures. Combining a nonlinear damage accumulation model, a probabilistic S-N curve, and a one-to-one probability density functions transformation technique, a general probabilistic methodology for modeling damage accumulation is developed to analyze the time-dependent fatigue reliability of railway axle steels. The damage accumulation is characterized as a distribution in a general degradation path, which captures a nonlinear damage accumulation phenomenon under variable-amplitude loading conditions; its mean and variability change with time. Moreover, a framework for fatigue reliability assessments and service life prediction is presented based on the estimation of the evolution and probabilistic distribution of fatigue damage over time. The proposed methodology is then validated by experimental data obtained for a railway axle (45 steel and LZ50 steel). The time-dependent reliability is analyzed and demonstrated through probabilistic modeling of cumulative fatigue damage, and good agreement between the predicted results and the experimental measurements under different variable amplitude loadings is obtained.

  • Rail vehicle response to lateral carbody excitations imitating crosswind
    • Authors: Thomas, D; Berg, M, Stichel, S, Diedrichs, B.
      Pages: 34 - 47
      Abstract: Repeatable field tests to measure the vehicle response to unsteady crosswinds are not practical due to safety and economic reasons. Simulations are therefore necessary to gather information on the vehicle response to crosswind. However, in turn, these simulations need to be validated. This study presents results of measured quasi-static and dynamic responses of a stationary rail vehicle due to defined lateral carbody excitations imitating unsteady crosswind, which are reflected by multibody simulations. The vehicle responses are measured in terms of suspension deflections, lateral carbody accelerations and vertical wheel/rail forces. The vehicle dynamic response to a gust-like event results in an overshoot of wheel unloading. In general the measurements and simulations show good agreement. However, the simulations partly overestimate the responses slightly and an influence due to airspring levelling can be observed in the measured values of quasi-static load cases.

  • Twin-tube- and bypass-containing magneto-rheological damper for use in
           railway vehicles
    • Authors: Guo, C; Gong, X, Zong, L, Peng, C, Xuan, S.
      Pages: 48 - 57
      Abstract: A 9-kN magneto-rheological (MR) damper for lateral suspension control of a railway vehicle is created in this paper. The twin-tube style is adopted in order to obtain a long damper stroke and guarantee the symmetry of the output damping force. A bypass MR valve with a radial flow path is utilised to control the generated damping force. Three-dimensional finite element analysis studies are performed to determine the magnetic field strength inside the MR valve region. The MR damper is mathematically modelled for the situation of a unidirectional fluid flow in the chamber and valve. The test results indicate that the MR damper can produce a considerable range of dynamic force and can operate as a fail-safe device. Sedimentation is detected in the damper; however, the response time is acceptable for real-world deployment.

  • Design and construction of backfills for railway track transition zones
    • Authors: Paixao, A; Fortunato, E, Calcada, R.
      Pages: 58 - 70
      Abstract: The initial geometry of a railway track continually degrades over its life-cycle. Changes in the track alignment give rise to variations in the dynamic axle load which accelerate track degradation, with consequences for maintenance and availability of the line. This behaviour is particularly evident at some critical locations that are associated with abrupt changes in the track’s vertical stiffness, such as transitions to bridges or other structures. In order to mitigate this problem, careful design and construction is required, for which several recommendations have been suggested in the literature. However, studies based on the maintenance records of existing high-speed lines have shown that the problem of track degradation associated with stiffness variations is far from being solved. This paper presents a short review on the design of transition zones. A case study on the design and construction of a transition zone on a new Portuguese railway line is analysed. Results of conventional laboratory and cyclic load triaxial testing on granular materials and in situ mechanical characterization of the layers are presented. Relevant aspects regarding the construction are addressed and discussed. The results obtained at the substructure level seem to indicate that the design of the transition zone was successful in minimizing settlement and achieving a gradual stiffness increase as a bridge is approached.

  • Comparative study of the effect of several trains on the rotation motion
           of ballast stones
    • Authors: Navarro-Medina, F; Perez-Grande, I, Sanz-Andres, A.
      Pages: 71 - 88
      Abstract: The ballast pick-up (or ballast train-induced-wind erosion (BTE)) phenomenon is a limiting factor for the maximum allowed operational train speed. The determination of the conditions for the initiation of the motion of the ballast stones due to the wind gust created by high-speed trains is critical to predict the start of ballast pick-up because, once the motion is initiated, a saltation-like chain reaction can take place. The aim of this paper is to present a model to evaluate the effect of a random aerodynamic impulse on stone motion initiation, and an experimental study performed to check the capability of the proposed model to classify trains by their effect on the ballast due to the flow generated by the trains. A measurement study has been performed at kp 69 + 500 on the Madrid – Barcelona High Speed Line. The obtained results show the feasibility of the proposed method, and contribute to a technique for BTE characterization, which can be relevant for the development of train interoperability standards.

  • Effects on braking distance from the use of traction fluid as a wheel/rail
    • Authors: Sone, Y; Suzumura, J, Koga, H, Tamoto, Y, Ishida, M, Yamazaki, H.-o, Sasaki, T.
      Pages: 89 - 96
      Abstract: Mineral oil and other lubricants are commonly applied to the gauge corner of high rails to avoid wheel/rail interface wear on railways. Although not directly applied to the top of the rail, these lubricants sometimes end up on this surface, and the relatively low coefficient of friction they produce can cause slipping or sliding at the wheel/rail interface during vehicle acceleration or braking. It has been reported in the literature that the application of traction fluid (a modern technique involving the use of a synthetic lubricant) produced a higher coefficient of friction than that of a conventional wheel/rail interface lubricant. In this study, tests were performed using traction fluid to evaluate its influence on a vehicle’s braking distance and other important performance elements from a practical point of view. The results of the braking performance evaluation carried out on a braking test stand showed that the braking distance increase with synthetic traction fluids was roughly one-half of that observed with conventional wheel/rail lubrication oil. This suggests the potential of using traction fluid as a wheel/rail lubricant.

  • Modelling train motion along arbitrary shaped track in transient regimes
    • Authors: Markova, O; Kovtun, H, Maliy, V.
      Pages: 97 - 105
      Abstract: A mathematical model to estimate the dynamic coefficients of a moving freight train is given; an approach is used in which some train vehicles are represented by simplified calculation schemes and other vehicles are represented in detail by taking into account their design and the features of the transported cargo. The train motion along track of different shapes and in various operational modes (with constant and variable speeds) is modelled. Some simulation results are presented.
