A Study on the Joint Element Connection of Joint Element Structure Method
Journal of the Korean Society for Railway, volume 5, issue 3, 2002, Pages 133~141
Recently developed JES(Joint Element Structure) Method was researched as a more safe and economic method than other under pass construction method and was applied to many construction sites. The joint element connection of JES Method is the most important factor for the to behavior of structure. The connection of JES method is filled with the mortar, and the steel and mortar of connections produce the same behavior as one material. The results of experience and numerical analysis are following: The maximum internal stress of connection is decided by the end of connection. also, The connection of joint element structure method have sufficient internal stress against fatigue.
Design Methodology of the Korean High Speed Train
Journal of the Korean Society for Railway, volume 5, issue 3, 2002, Pages 142~147
This paper proposes the Systematic Design Methodology of the Korean High Speed Train. High Speed Train does not operate in isolation and is a part of a rail system which is influenced through input and output effects from the environment and from the neighbouring system. To fullfil its overall desired function, such input and output relationships between the systems must be considered in the system boundary conditions. Therefore, the overall interrelationship of all these effects has to be carefully considered during the design process. Here proposed methodology may provide a guide line and criteria for the systematic problem solving method of that highly complex High Speed Train System.
Calibration of Health Monitoring System installed in the Railway Bridges
Journal of the Korean Society for Railway, volume 5, issue 3, 2002, Pages 148~157
A health monitoring system becomes a useful tool to obtain information on long term behavior of the important railway structures such as very long span and special type bridges. The health monitoring system not only gives the direct measurement data of the railway bridges but also provides the basic data on the maintenance of the structures. Therefore, periodic calibrations of the health monitoring system will be a necessary step toward precise and accurate assessment of the railway bridges. In this study, the calibration and gauge factor readjustment process made for the health monitoring system installed in the railroad bridges is reviewed and some findings are explained in detail: specifically, the calibrators made for this purpose are illustrated and the regression processes of the calibration on long-term displacement using water level sensor, longitudinal displacement using LVDT sensor, instantaneous displacement using LVDT sensors and accelerometer are described in full length. Based on the regression results, it was found that the gauge factors need to be readjusted according to the regression equation but, since the deviation or shift is not serious so far, long-term observation on each sensor is also recommended. Future work will be concentrated on the long-term analysis of each sensor and on the database creation so that the assessment of the structures is possible.
Development of a Measurement System Development for On-Line Testing of High Speed Railway
Journal of the Korean Society for Railway, volume 5, issue 3, 2002, Pages 158~166
In this paper, we introduce the software and hardware of the measurement system for on-line testing and evaluation of high speed railway. The test items focus on the verification of the performance and acquirement of the technical data of the high speed railway system. The software controls the hardware of the measurement system, perform the analysis and calculation of measurement data and acts as interface between users and the system hardware. For this purpose, three programs a measuring program, a monitoring program and post-processing program are developed. The detailed test scenario is in the process of development to closely follow the process of development and design of the system.
A Study on Stress Distribution of Korean High Speed Train Wheel at Tread Braking
Journal of the Korean Society for Railway, volume 5, issue 3, 2002, Pages 167~173
The influence of thermal stress at tread breaking in Korean High Speed Train wheel was investigated using the coupled thermal-mechanical analysis technique. The mechanical load or wheel-rail contract load and braking load were considered during FEM analysis. During the stop braking, the effect of mechanical stress on the combined stress is relatively larger than that of thermal stress in the rim of wheel. However, the effect of thermal stress is relatively larger than that of mechanical stress in the plate of wheel. When 300% of the block force was applied, the maximum von Mises stress of 61.0 MPa was found at the outside plate around 400 mm far away from the wheel center.

In multibody dynamics, DAE(Differential Algebraic Equations) that combine differential equations of motion and kinematic constraint equations should be solved. To solve these equations, either coordinate partitioning method or constraint stabilization method is commonly used. The most typical coordinate partitioning methods are LU decomposition, QR decomposition, and SVD(singular value decomposition). The objective of this research is to suggest a hybrid coordinate partitioning method in the dynamic analysis of multibody systems containing singular configurations. Two coordinate partitioning methods, i.e. LU decomposition and QR decomposition for constrained multibody systems, are combined for a new hybrid coordinate partitioning method. The proposed hybrid method reduces the simulation time while keeping accuracy of the solution.
Studies on the Prevention of Damages on the Carbody of Aluminum Rolling Stock
Journal of the Korean Society for Railway, volume 5, issue 3, 2002, Pages 181~186
Aluminum rolling stocks have been developed for six years in Korea and commercial trainsets are being constructed by the carbuilder. Aluminum alloys are sensitive to various imperfections. In this paper, damages and failures of the aluminum carbody taking place during the process of development are investigated and accumulated data are released. Also, remedies for the failures are suggested and design changes are introduced. It is expected that all informations can contribute to construction of reliable and safe aluminum rolling stocks.
Simulation of Train Crashes in Three Dimensions
Journal of the Korean Society for Railway, volume 5, issue 3, 2002, Pages 187~195
It is important to predict the crash behavior of trains to improve their crashworthiness. This paper investigates the simulation of high-speed train crashes in three dimensions using multibody dynamics. At present, little is known about three-dimensional crash simulations. This study shows that it is possible to simulate overriding and lateral buckling, including results from one- or two-dimensional simulations. Several parameters, however, such as computational time and large deformation of structures, need further investigation.
An evaluation of load of the steel bar straightener using plastic moment
Journal of the Korean Society for Railway, volume 5, issue 3, 2002, Pages 196~200
In this paper, the straightening process of a steel bar straightener is studied. The straightener carries out the bending and reverse bending process repeatedly. Plastic theory is employed for the analysis of roller-supporting-load, and the residual stress and the axial load of a steel bar are calculated by using the bending moment. The Bauschinger effect and plastic moment are calculated by using the residual stress and Swift's method respectively. It is verified from the experiments that the displacement calculated from theory makes it possible to straighten a steel bar.
