 Abstract
A method of evaluating the optimal alignment range while considering ride comfort when performing line renewal of curved tracks for speed-up is proposed in this study. The proposed method was applied to analyze the optimal renewal range for horizontal alignments with the smallest curve radii in the Kyung-Bu high-speed line; a parametric study on the effects of various initial design conditions on the permissible renewal range and optimal alignment range was also performed. From the analysis results, it was found that the permissible range is enhanced in proportion to the increase in the curve radius and the cant. It was also verified that a slight adjustment of the horizontal alignment enables speed-up even in the case of R7000/R8000, placed in the ballasted track section of the Kyung-Bu high-speed line.
