Increasing urban sprawl and climate changes have been causing unexpected high-intensity rainfall events. Thus there are needs to enhance conventional disaster management system for comprehensive actions to secure safety. Therefore long-term and comprehensive flood management plans need to be well established. Recently torrential snowfall are occurring frequently, causing have snow traffic jams on the road. To secure safety and on-time operation of the Bi-modal tram system, well-structured disaster management system capable of analyzing the show pack melt/freezing due to unexpected snowfall are needed. To secure safety of the Bi-modal tram system due to torrential snow-fall, the snow melt simulation capability was investigated. The snow accumulation and snow melt were measured to validate the SWMM snow melt component. It showed that there was a good agreement between measured snow melt data and the simulated ones. Therefore, the Bi-modal tram disaster management system will be able to predict snow melt reasonably well to secure safety of the Bi-modal tram system during the winter. The Bi-modal tram disaster management system can be used to identify top priority area for know removal within the tram route in case of torrential snowfall to secure on-time operation of the tram. Also it can be used for detour route in the tram networks based on the disaster management system prediction.

Journal of the Korean Society for Railway, volume 11, issue 5, 2008, Pages 449~454
The study aims at providing an influential model with regard to the level of satisfaction over the call center users and its operator in the National Railroad Administration, while at the same time seeking for possible ways to improve service standards in the call centers for Korean railroads. As a result, it demonstrates that; in the aspect of callers, the call center personnel are required to improve their ability and reciprocating attitude toward the uses; in the aspect of the operator, they are in need of more qualified service providing including advanced facilities. In this context, it is of outstanding importance to take into account the need and demand by both of the user and the operator as for the call center.

Journal of the Korean Society for Railway, volume 11, issue 5, 2008, Pages 455~464
This paper examines the situation and tasks of competitive systems of EU transport market focusing on railways. Recently, the EU transport market has changed radically, thanks to an increasingly competitive rail market. The European Commission has stimulated the creation of a competitive environment that will enhance the position of rail. Some scholars have insisted that the rail market is more monopolistic than competitive. However, the case of UK rail privatization suggests this is not the case. Moreover, some countries have a rail market that is more competitive. We draw on a wide range of sources including statistics and analyses of recent phenomena. These demonstrate the emergence of competitive markets in EU rail and the difficulty of developing a competitive market. With regard to the adoption of the competitive market, we examine three things. First, we observe recent cases and trends in competitive markets. Second, we compare the result of competitive markets and non-competitive markets within EU nations. Third, we demonstrate factors of formation of competitive markets and the possible expansion. We identified differences within open market policies amongst EU nations. Although a competitive EU rail market may have some difficulties, it will steadily begin to overcome technological differences and a lack of funds, because EU countries have a common goal, which is to develop the railways, solving, wherever possible both environmental and energy problems. Through this analysis, we found that the free market in EU rail will be extended to deliver efficiency and quality service.

Sound transmission characteristics are investigated on the honeycomb panels used for railway vehicles. Equivalent orthotropic plate model and equivalent mass law are applied to predict the sound transmission loss (STL) of the honeycomb panels. The predicted values of the STL are compared with the measured values. The reliability and the limitation of the prediction models are investigated. Coincidence effect and local resonance effect on STL are considered. The result of the study shows that the equivalent orthotropic plate model can be used as a good prediction model, if the local resonance frequency is properly applied. finally, ways to improve the severe STL drop by local resonance are proposed and the effect on the sound insulation performance is analysed.

Lee, Tae-Gyu ; Oa, Seong-Wook ;
Journal of the Korean Society for Railway, volume 11, issue 5, 2008, Pages 471~476
The superstructure type of the railway bridge in our country, is mainly classified into the box girder and the I-type girder. The box girder is widely used in the high speed railway bridge because of the safety due to dynamic behavior. The I-type girder is used in the conventional railway bridge, and is also divided into the general type and the composite type, and the newly modified types have been developed. According to the current railway bridge design code, the girder design by the span length in various types of railway bridge is performed in is study. The suitable girder height and the construction cost by the span length are analyzed, and the comparative analysis of the structural efficiency and the economical efficiency is carried out. From this study, the composite type girder is appeared the good result in respect of the structural efficiency. However, in the economical aspect, the general I-type girder is required less cost than the other types.

This paper dealt with a detection method of series arc existence which is a symptom of electric fires in low-voltage system. The proposed detection circuit consists of a high-pass filter with a low cut-off frequency of 3kHz to attenuate power frequency voltage by 80 dB and an active band-pass filter with a center frequency of 4kHz to detect only the series arc signals. The performance of the circuit was evaluated in a phase-controlled incandescent lamp as a non-linear load and an inverted-fed induction motor as a high frequency load by using the arc generator specified in UL1699. From the experimental results, it was confirmed that the proposed method solved the detection error, which is being the most problem, by discriminating the series arc signal even in non-linear and high frequency loads.

Seoul Metro Line 9 (SML9) will link Gimpo Airport to the Gangnam district opening in May 2009. SML9 has a new model in Korea constructed by metropolitan government and private company and operated by specialized public transportation service provider. SML9 is confronted with tough environment of stagnated public transportation and strong competitor, Olympic city expressway. Consequently SML9 must lead the maximum efficiency by using its material and human resource. Hereupon, I propose renovation plans from 3 viewpoints of operation field of SML9: Rapid-Local combination, close connection with other transportation and direct connecting service into Incheon Air-port Railroad(AREX).

In general, deflection limit criteria of bridge design specifications have been considered based on static serviceability and structural stability. Dynamic serviceability induced from bridge vibration actually has not been included in the criteria. Thus, it is necessary for deflection limit to be considered in order to check dynamic service- ability on bridge vibration. In this study, The allowable displacement of Korea Railway Bridge Design Specifications is compared to the frequency domain comfort limit and analyzed france code and japanese code. Korea Railway Bridge Design Specifications is regulated based on the train speed. Such is because the vibration time duration is partly considered. but this criteria is not satisfied with comfort limit. and, it is estimated to be capable to provide deflection limit considering dynamic serviceability. In order to evaluate the dynamic serviceability of various types of railway bridges in current public were selected and their dynamic signals were measured. and the result of the bridge-train interaction analysis according to the changes in bridge stiffness was compared to the comfort limit to suggest the stiff-ness limit to the dynamic serviceability, which should conveniently be applied at the field.

The catenary line and feeder line installed on same electrical pole in opened place of AC electrical rail-road. The Electrical pole has receive a different weight from the catenary line and feeder line. So we have designed the Feeder supporting metal with new shape and material based on this fact. And then we have examined the stability of Feeder supporting metal designed a steel pipe by FEM program. New steel pipe compared with existing steel pipe on a economy respect. That result give proof the stability and economy as feeder supporting steel. There-fore this device have a basic of Value Engineering, so we have the need of reflection to design as a device of new electrical pole.

In general, based on criteria of subway law, radius 500m from subway station is defined as SIA (Subway Station Influence Area). Therefore, in this paper, selection models of SIA are developed to identify appropriate SIA for specific legions in Seoul metropolitan city based on CHAID analysis. As a result, following outputs are obtained; (1) walking distance from subway station is the most influential factor to define SIA (2) SIAs vary with regions (i. e. Gangnam area: 767m, Gangbuk area: 452m), and (3) walking distance from subway station is influential to land price of SIA. In addition, in Gangnam, the structure of land price of the closest section has a polynomial trend curve rather than linear compared in comparison with other sections. Therefore, it is desirable for current definition of SIA (radius 500m from subway station) to be redefined to reflect characteristics of land use and walking distance according to each region respectively.

Currently, urban areas face congestion problems that diminish personal mobility and freight-transport productivity. An increasing number of experts suggest that separating freight traffic from passenger traffic makes sense in terms of economics, the environment, and safety. Some experts suggest that tube transportation is the solution. The objective of this paper is to evaluate the potential benefits and limitations of tube transportation system as a viable mode of transport that can alleviate congestion on roadways. Specifically, this research employs theoretical and practical method identifying, evaluating, and selecting appropriate freight pipeline systems; evaluating the technical and economic feasibility of tube transportation; and estimating environmental, energy, and safety benefits.
