Dynamics of Rail Transit Tunnel Systems Excerpt :

In recent years, a large number of rail transit tunnels have been constructed and put into operation, particularly in China. Internationally, this is also an area of expanding interest. To evaluate the time-dependent degradation of tunnel structures and train-induced environmental vibration, a reliable model must be established to determine the dynamic response of a vehicle-track-tunnel-soil system. Such a model should be able to characterize various mechanisms of coupled vibration and to provide guidance to engineers for measures to mitigate various problems. Dynamics of Rail Transit Tunnel Systems develops the dynamic theory of a rail transit tunnel system, and provides research methods for the evaluation of long-term settlement of rail transit tunnels in: soft soil, the service performance of tunnel structures, and the characterization of environmental vibration induced by trains. Provides full theoretical background to help the reader gain an in-depth understanding of various methods used for dynamic analysis of a rail transit tunnel system Develops the dynamics theory and method of a rail transit tunnel system, under the context of challenging engineering problems Presents methods for analysing the dynamic responses of rail transit tunnel-soil systems Looks at problems that need to be solved in the future, and proposes potential directions for future research

Vehicle Track Coupled Dynamics Excerpt :

This book systematically presents the theory, numerical implementation, field experiments and practical engineering applications of the ‘Vehicle–Track Coupled Dynamics’. Representing a radical departure from classic vehicle system dynamics and track dynamics, the vehicle–track coupled dynamics theory considers the vehicle and track as one interactive and integrated system coupled through wheel–rail interaction. This new theory enables a more comprehensive and accurate solution to the train–track dynamic interaction problem which is a fundamental and important research topic in railway transportation system, especially for the rapidly developed high-speed and heavy-haul railways. It has been widely applied in practical railway engineering. Dr. Wanming Zhai is a Chair Professor of Railway Engineering at Southwest Jiaotong University, where he is also chairman of the Academic Committee and Director of the Train and Track Research Institute. He is a member of the Chinese Academy of Sciences and one of the leading scientists in railway system dynamics. Professor Zhai is Editor-in-Chief of both the International Journal of Rail Transportation, published by Taylor & Francis Group, and the Journal of Modern Transportation, published by Springer. In addition, he is a trustee of the International Association for Vehicle System Dynamics, Vice President of the Chinese Society of Theoretical and Applied Mechanics, and Vice President of the Chinese Society for Vibration Engineering. /div

Dynamics of Vehicles on Roads and Tracks Excerpt :

The International Symposium on Dynamics of Vehicles on Roads and Tracks is the leading international gathering of scientists and engineers from academia and industry in the field of ground vehicle dynamics to present and exchange their latest innovations and breakthroughs. Established in Vienna in 1977, the International Association of Vehicle System Dynamics (IAVSD) has since held its biennial symposia throughout Europe and in the USA, Canada, Japan, South Africa and China. The main objectives of IAVSD are to promote the development of the science of vehicle dynamics and to encourage engineering applications of this field of science, to inform scientists and engineers on the current state-of-the-art in the field of vehicle dynamics and to broaden contacts among persons and organisations of the various countries engaged in scientific research and development in the field of vehicle dynamics and related areas. IAVSD 2017, the 25th Symposium of the International Association of Vehicle System Dynamics was hosted by the Centre for Railway Engineering at Central Queensland University, Rockhampton, Australia in August 2017. The symposium focused on the following topics related to road and rail vehicles and trains: dynamics and stability; vibration and comfort; suspension; steering; traction and braking; active safety systems; advanced driver assistance systems; autonomous road and rail vehicles; adhesion and friction; wheel-rail contact; tyre-road interaction; aerodynamics and crosswind; pantograph-catenary dynamics; modelling and simulation; driver-vehicle interaction; field and laboratory testing; vehicle control and mechatronics; performance and optimization; instrumentation and condition monitoring; and environmental considerations. Providing a comprehensive review of the latest innovative developments and practical applications in road and rail vehicle dynamics, the 213 papers now published in these proceedings will contribute greatly to a better understanding of rel
