The Study of Manufacture and Inertia Load Test of Inverter for Electrical Multiple Unit
Journal of the Korean Society for Railway, volume 3, issue 1, 2000, Pages 1~11
In this paper, the IGBT VVVF inverter for 1C4M propulsion system of railway traction is studied. The inverter is consisted of IGBT stacks, a DB unit, and a control unit. The test results of the combined system is given, which shows an excellent performance of the overall system.
An Experimental Study on Validation of Nonlinear Critical Speed
Journal of the Korean Society for Railway, volume 3, issue 1, 2000, Pages 12~18
This paper addresses the experimental study on the nonlinear critical speed and the validity of simple prediction formulation. The experiment on nonlinear critical speed is carried out using roller rigs, which has been impossible on track because of a possibility of an accident. In addition, experiment for a bogie is performed to check the difference in modeling a full railway vehicle and a bogie. It is found that nonlinear critical speed proves to be an inherent phenomenon of a railway vehicle itself and the difference of test results between a full railway vehicle and a bogie is comparatively negligible. Finally. the accuracy of simple prediction formulation for outbreak velocity and response frequency in hunting is investigated.
The Characteristics of Rail Temperature for Track Maintenance
Journal of the Korean Society for Railway, volume 3, issue 1, 2000, Pages 19~26
The rail temperature is important to preserve the joint gap for standard length of rail and to determine the installation temperature which has direct influence on the rail buckling and failure in welded part for continuous welded rail(CWR), Therefore, we have measured and investigated various characteristics of rail temperature for each kind of rail. As the results of this, the correlation between the atmosphere temperature and the rail temperature which is commonly used by Korean Railway should be reconsidered. Also, the daily highest '||'&'||' lowest rail temperature was occurred when each temperature is higher and when it's lower. For the light rail, the rail temperature by the sun-light increases quickly and decreases late. But the time where the highest temperature is attained is same. There are some differences between the shade and sunny place about 3.0∼4.0
. The temperature of rail web is almost close to the conversion rail temperature for rail expansion. The wind of 1 m/s has an influence on the rail temperature around 5
Analysis on the Crashworthiness of the Full Rake Korean Electric Multiple Unit Train
Journal of the Korean Society for Railway, volume 3, issue 1, 2000, Pages 27~33
In this paper, numerically evaluated is the crashworthiness of the new design of the standard Korea Electric Multiple Unit Train(K-EMU)[developed by the Korea Railway Research Institute]. The 4-car consist of K-EMU is analyzed under collision conditions such as normal coupling, heavy shunting, light collision and heavy collision to collide against another stationary one at 5 kph, 10 kph, 25 kph and 32 kph, respectively. Energy absorbing capacity of its draftgear commercially available in the market and to be equipped in K-EMU is evaluated under each collision condition. Analytical results show that draftgear only is not enough to provide necessary energy absorbing capacity. It is therefore concluded that additional energy absorbers like mechanical fuses should be adopted to improve the crashworthiness of K-EMU.
Analysis of Static and Dynamic Characteristics of Reinforced Roadbed Materials
Journal of the Korean Society for Railway, volume 3, issue 1, 2000, Pages 34~41
The analysis of static and dynamic characteristics of reinforced roadbed materials was performed through model and laboratory tests. The strength characteristic of reinforced roadbed materials such as HMS-25 and soil were investigated through the unconfined axial compression test, the model soil box test and the combined resonant column and torsional shear test. The unconfined axial compression strength of HMS-25 shows a steady increasement in strength due to the chemical hardening reaction between HMS-25 and water. The result of model soil box test reveals that railroad roadbed of HMS-25 is better than that of soil in several aspects, such as, bearing capacity and settlement. The combined resonant column and torsional shear test result indicates that shear modulus of HMS-25 and soil increase with the power of 0.5 to the confining pressure and linear relationship to normalized shear modulus and damping ratio.
