  • Determinants of rolling stock maintenance cost in metros
    • Authors: Brage-Ardao, R; Graham, D. J, Anderson, R. J.
      Pages: 1487 - 1495
      Abstract: This study examines the economies of scale and the determinants of rolling stock maintenance costs for 24 urban rail transit operators. The estimates reveal significant returns to scale in maintenance for both per car and per car kilometre. The econometric analysis also provides statistically significant cost elasticities for wages and staff hours, suggesting substitution effects between factors. Staff outsourcing is found to significantly decrease costs, whereas higher levels of fleet availability at the peak and rolling stock failures increase it. The effect of the age of rolling stock and the network is negligible on rolling stock maintenance costs; however, the analysis reveals a downward trend in rolling stock costs among the metros in the CoMET and Nova consortia.

  • Optimal rail profile design for a curved segment of a heavy haul railway
           using a response surface approach
    • Authors: Wang, J; Chen, S, Li, X, Wu, Y.
      Pages: 1496 - 1508
      Abstract: To determine the optimal design of the rail profile for a curved segment of a heavy haul railway, an optimization method that considers the extent of rail wear over the entire design cycle was developed. The approach is based on wheel–rail rolling contact theory, vehicle–track dynamic theory and nonlinear programming theory. The changes in the rail profile were analyzed using an updating strategy that considers random irregularities in the railway track. The minimum average metal loss from the vehicle in terms of wear and grinding for the whole design cycle was regarded as the design objective, and discrete point coordinates on the rail were regarded as the design variables. A radial basis function was used to establish an approximate model, which formed an explicit function between design variables and design objectives. The optimization model was established on this basis, and a genetic algorithm was used to solve the optimization model for the optimized profile. The maximum passing gross load for the whole design cycle reached 150.74 x106 t, an increase of 139.73% compared with the standard profile, which achieved the purpose of prolonging the service life of the rail.

  • The active control of the lateral movement of a motor suspended under a
           high-speed locomotive
    • Authors: Yao, Y; Zhang, X, Liu, X.
      Pages: 1509 - 1520
      Abstract: In order to improve the dynamic performance of high-speed locomotives, an active control method for the movement of a suspended motor is proposed, in which a damper is replaced by an actuator. A simplified mechanical model of the flexible suspension system is established to study its dynamics and create an active control strategy. Then, a multi-body dynamic model of the locomotive is simulated to obtain the conditions for optimal control. The results show that a smaller damping of the lateral suspension is conducive to improving the dynamic performance of the locomotive; the system has a theoretical optimum damping ratio of between 0.1 and 0.3. A small level of damping results in a large lateral displacement of the suspended system, which cannot be allowed to occur due to space limitations. The optimal control is used with the aim of reducing the lateral vibration amplitude of the suspended motor system and bogie frame. The active control of the suspension system improves the lateral dynamic performance of the locomotive and effectively limits the lateral displacement of the suspended system relative to the bogie frame. Compared with a passive suspension approach, the lateral forces on the wheelset are reduced by up to 25% at speeds between 140 and 180 km/h on straight track, and the nonlinear critical speed is increased from 390 to 480 km/h.

  • The influence of snow on the tread braking performance of a train: A
           pin-on-disc simulation performed in a climate chamber
    • Authors: Olofsson, U; Sundh, J, Bik, U, Nilsson, R.
      Pages: 1521 - 1530
      Abstract: In trains with tread brakes, the coefficient of friction between the brake block and the railway wheel determines the stopping distance. The blocks have traditionally been manufactured from cast iron. Although these blocks have good braking capacity, their use is often restricted due to the squealing noise they emit. Tests of alternative composite block materials have been successful under summer conditions; however, in regions with snowy winters the use of such materials has been limited due to problems with braking capacity under snowy conditions. This research aims to develop a laboratory-scale test methodology for evaluating the braking capacity of tread brake materials under winter and snowy conditions. A pin-on-disc machine placed in a climate chamber was used for testing, and a block of standard cast iron was compared with blocks of standard composite materials. The results indicated that the blocks of standard composite materials generate a much smoother surface on the counter wheel and a significantly lower friction coefficient under snowy conditions. A second test series evaluated blocks of alternative composite materials, and a candidate material with low noise and a sufficiently high sliding friction coefficient was selected for further study. A third test series examining geometrical changes in the contact surface in terms of milled parallel tracks was performed; it revealed that the braking capacity under winter conditions can be increased by milling actions if the parallel tracks are properly oriented – in this case, at an angle of 45° to the sliding direction.

  • Comprehensive analysis of the influence of door width on the passenger
           flow time on Korean urban railways
    • Authors: Oh, S; Kim, S, Hong, J.
      Pages: 1531 - 1539
      Abstract: This paper deals with the effect of door width on the passenger flow time on Korean urban railways using analysis of covariance (ANCOVA) and regression analysis. All regression coefficients are statistically significant in both analyses. The ANCOVA results show that increasing the door width can be quite useful in reducing passenger flow time. Regression analysis, which controls for other independent variables, also shows a clear relationship between door width and passenger flow time. In an additional regression model, we consider the interaction between door width and the number of boarding passengers. This paper also compares flow times estimated through two different methods: laboratory experiments and live railway observation, and finds no significant difference between the two approaches.

  • Predictive modeling of the rail grinding process using a distributed
           cutting grain approach
    • Authors: Zhi, S; Li, J, Zarembski, A. M.
      Pages: 1540 - 1560
      Abstract: High-density railway lines experience a high rate of deterioration on the running surface of the rails; it can be addressed by rail grinding in order to reduce the frequency of rail replacement. Rail grinding includes additional complex features beyond what is usually considered in conventional grinding. Although extensive empirical experience exists to describe rail grinding, it can still be considered to be an emerging field that is in need of predictive theoretical guidance. This paper presents a newly developed modeling approach that is intended to provide a theoretical understanding of the rail grinding process and allow the prediction of rail grinding behavior and performance. The modeling is a bottom-up approach that starts from individual cutting grains and builds up to the rail grinding train level. First, grain distribution modeling is used to build a uniform template for the grinding simulation, based on the assumption of spherical grains with normally distributed sizes. Second, one representative slice is extracted as a grinding surface with stable grains. Protrusion heights and spacing distances of the cutting grains are analyzed to obtain the features of the grinding surface. Then the spherical grains are transformed into decahedrons with arbitrary poses, so as to closely approximate the actual surface of a grinding wheel. Third, the interactions of the cutting grains are combined into a model of a single grinding wheel and compared to test results from a single-wheel test. This allows for the connection between the utilized grinding parameters and the grinding results to be isolated, which is validated with supporting experiments performed on a single wheel. The individual wheel relationships can be combined into a full multi-wheel grinding pattern for estimating the simulation results of a multi-wheel grinding train. Eventually, the comparison between the simulations and grinding tests is used to show the effectiveness of the predictive rail grinding modeling at the level of a rail grinding train.

  • Experimental characterisation of railway wheel squeal occurring in
           large-radius curves
    • Pages: 1561 - 1574
      Abstract: Tonal squeal noise (i.e. the high-amplitude singing of a railway wheel with pure tone components) is emitted by some trailing inner wagon wheels on heavy haul trains traversing 1000 m radius curves on the iron ore export line in South Africa. Field measurements have shown that the trailing inner wheels that squeal are subject to predominantly longitudinal creepage with little-to-no lateral creepage. The longitudinal creepage acting at the contact of the squealing wheels exceeds 1%, which supports the likelihood of creep saturation and subsequent squealing due to unsteady longitudinal creepage in the large-radius curves. Experimental modal analysis of the wheel types identified to be relevant to squeal has revealed that for each unstable frequency, two eigenmodes are likely to be important: one that has a large mode shape component at the wheel–rail contact in the circumferential direction and another that has a large mode shape component at the wheel–rail contact in the radial direction. A frictional self-excitation mechanism based on mode-coupling is favoured as being responsible for squeal excited in large-radius curves.

  • Modelling aspects of the design of railway vehicle structures and their
    • Authors: Afazov, S; Denmark, W, Yaghi, A.
      Pages: 1575 - 1589
      Abstract: Travelling by rail is considered to be a safe option compared with other types of transport, in terms of the number of accidents. However, there are always opportunities to improve the current safety standards and industrial practices. The aim of this paper is to give a better understanding of the current modelling techniques that could support the design of new railway vehicle structures. The paper highlights the established practices in modelling of proof, fatigue and crashworthiness. It also reviews the state-of-the-art in the modelling of material behaviour, recommends practical modelling solutions that can be used in the railway industry, and demonstrates new modelling techniques for crashworthiness.

  • Scaled tests and numerical simulations of rail vehicle collisions for
           various train sets
    • Authors: Li, R; Xu, P, Peng, Y, Xie, Y.-q.
      Pages: 1590 - 1600
      Abstract: This paper investigates the energy absorption and dissipation pattern in train-to-train collisions. For this purpose, simplified scaled rail vehicle models were designed based on the energy-absorbing characteristics of honeycomb-based structures under static loading, and scaled tests were performed under dynamic loading. In this study, a one-eighth-scale model of train-to-train collisions for a three-car set was tested, and the corresponding displacement–time and velocity–time curves were obtained. The extents of energy absorption and dissipation were also calculated. Also, finite element simulations were conducted to simulate one-eighth-scale train collisions for three-car, five-car and eight-car sets. The finite element numerical simulation of scaled train collisions produced results that were consistent with experiment results. The simulation results also indicated that train sets do not significantly affect energy absorption and dissipation pattern. The energy-absorbing structure at the front of a train plays a major role in the collisions. Moving cars absorb slightly more energy than stationary cars in both the scaled test and finite element simulations.

  • Numerical analysis of railway transition zones in soft soil
    • Authors: Zuada Coelho, B; Hicks, M. A.
      Pages: 1601 - 1613
      Abstract: Transition zones are constructions intended to provide smooth passage of a train, when moving from a track supported on an embankment to a track on a stiff structure, such as a bridge, tunnel or culvert. The design of transition zones is based on creating a gradual stiffness variation between the free track and the stiffer structure. In the Netherlands, the standard transition zone design consists of placing a concrete approach slab before and after the structure. In the present paper, the performance of a typical transition zone is assessed, by means of numerical analysis. After validation of the results it is shown that the presence of a concrete slab, combined with the fact that the sleepers are hanging, causes a stress redistribution towards the free end of the approach slabs. This aggravates the long-term deformation of the soil and increases the differential settlement under normal train speed. A critical train speed is identified for the transition zone.

  • Study of the fatigue testing of a car body underframe for a high-speed
    • Authors: Song, Y; Wu, P, Jia, L.
      Pages: 1614 - 1625
      Abstract: A method is proposed for the fatigue strength testing of the underframe of a railway vehicle car body. Fatigue strength testing of individual components of the draft gear is conducted under laboratory conditions. Loads on individual components equivalent to vehicle loads are accurately determined in these experiments. The response of the tested specimen is consistent with the partial response of the entire car body. The basic process of reproducing the vehicle’s load spectrum on the simulation test platform is analyzed in detail. The vibrational state of the car body under realistic track conditions is accurately simulated on the test platform, which allows the body to be subjected to random loads and provides a basis for the specifications of follow-up fatigue tests on the car body and its components.
