Development of the Track System for a LIM Type Maglev

LIM 방식 자기부상철도의 궤도시스템 개발

  • Published : 2009.10.30


This paper proposes the track system with twin block sleeper for a LIM type maglev railroad. Because a LIM type maglev railroad is expected to be constructed in inner city, social costs can be required under construction. Accordingly, superstructure using precast plate was adopted and twin block sleeper which can be constructed together with precast plate was developed to reduce the construction period. To examine the structural safety of the proposed track system with twin block sleeper, the finite element analyses and the laboratory experiments were performed. Also, the workability of the proposed track system was investigated through the construction simulation test and construction experience in test bed.
