This study is focused on systematic study on the culture ＆ design and competitiveness for railway industry, that emphasizing on making necessary strategic scenarios accordingly. Consequently, it is going to make higher added values to secure a footing and advanced images of railway industry.
A Study on the Factors of the Engine driver′s Belief Revision
Journal of the Korean Society for Railway, volume 5, issue 4, 2002, Pages 209~214
Belief revision involves integrating new information with the current belief. It is a ubiquitous human activity. A critical feature of belief revision lies in its sequential nature. Railroad system can be described as organic. Engine drivers take a great role in this system. Recently, Hogarth and Einhorn(1992) have posited a belief-adjustment model for updating beliefs. Based on a sequential anchoring and adjustment strategy, the model is important for decision makers. The sequential nature of information processing is affected by some task variables. The purpose of this study is to examin factors which influnce on the Enginr Driver's belief revision process. The factors are the order, experience and task. The difference of belief revision is due to the order and experience level.
A Study on Crashworthiness of Rubber Tired AGT
Journal of the Korean Society for Railway, volume 5, issue 4, 2002, Pages 215~221
In the standard specifications for the urban EMU (Electric Multiple Unit) train, there are several items to ensure safety against accidents. The 21st to the 23rd items have much to do with the crashworthiness of the urban EMU train. In this study, a rubber-tired Automated Guide-way Transit (AGT) System under development by KRRI is numerically evaluated from the point of view of crashworthiness by applying the above crashworthiness items. The numerical results show that the design of the AGT satisfies the 22nd and 23rd items. But a design modification to adopt mechanical fuses is recommended to reduce impact accelerations with respect to the 21st item.
Static and Fatigue Analysis of Bogie Rotating Frame for a Light Rail Train
Journal of the Korean Society for Railway, volume 5, issue 4, 2002, Pages 222~230
The rotating bogie frame is used in the bogie for a Light Rail Train under development in Korea. In development of the bogie, the structural strength and fatigue characteristics of the rotating bogie frame have been evaluated under the predefined load cases according to the Korean standards for a urban EMU. No part of the rotating bogie frame was subjected to stress beyond the fatigue endurance limits of the material used when grinding the welding of the lower plate link. It is concluded that the rotating bogie frame is safe in view of its static and fatigure strength.
Scale Modeling Technique for the Crash Analysis of Railway Vehicle Structure
Journal of the Korean Society for Railway, volume 5, issue 4, 2002, Pages 231~236
Todays, crash safety requirements of the railway vehicle structures become important design criterion according to the increased driving speed and the lightweight construction. Although the crash analysis using computer simulation can be effectively applied to predict the crash performance of the railway vehicles in the early design stage, the optimized design w.r.t the crash safety could be realized by the crash tests with actual prototype vehicles. However, it is very expensive and time-consuming task to perform the crash test of the railway vehicles. As a measure to cope with the problem, in this paper, the scale modeling technique is suggested and experimentally verified to predict the impact energy absorption characteristics of full scale model of aluminum extrusions sub-structures and the high-speed railway vehicle structure.
A study on the connected service of urban railway
Journal of the Korean Society for Railway, volume 5, issue 4, 2002, Pages 237~243
Now operating lines of many urban railway are currently in progress in the Seoul, but the inadequate consideration of links between different lines could create inconvenience as the public transport. This paper is studied about the connection service design of urban-railway convinced for other metropolis railways forms and propose the base pilot plan of the railway network linking system in Seoul Metropolis.
Ground Response Curve for Ground Movement Analysis of Tunnel
Journal of the Korean Society for Railway, volume 5, issue 4, 2002, Pages 244~252
We must notice ground movement by excavation for reasonable tunnel designs. The convergence confinement method is an attempt to evaluate tunnel stability conditions by means of a mathematical model and a ground response curve. In this study, the convergence confinement method by numerical model was examined. This method don't need the basic assumptions for a mathematical model of circular tunnel shape, and hydrostatic in situ stress. Also modified ground response curve that is calculated after installing the support, is suggested, which informs us the ground movement mechanism. The ground response curve and the support reaction curve are mutually dependent. Especially the support reaction curve depends upon the ground response curve. The mechanism of tunnel must be analyzed by the interaction between support and ground. Consequently the stability of tunnel must be qualitatively investigated by a ground response curve and quantitatively adjudged by a numerical analysis for the reasonable design of tunnel.
Model development of electrified railroad supply system for Electromagnetic Transient Analysis
Journal of the Korean Society for Railway, volume 5, issue 4, 2002, Pages 253~259
This paper presents the first simulation model using EMTDC program to analyze the electrified train voltage distribution characteristics in ac auto-transformer fed railroads. In general, all of the electrified train supply system has the characteristics that the train supply line is a naturally non-symmetrical and unbalanced system. Also, it is needed to model the Scott transformer which invert the balanced 3-phase quantity into 2-phase. Therefore, the general simulation methodology using previous simplified equivalent circuit or RMS based program can't obtain the accurate results to reflect the real-time operation because these methodology is basically assumed on completely 3-phase balanced system. To overcome these defects, in this paper, the EMTDC simulation model to analysis the completely electrified railroad system with Scott transformer and AC auto-transformer is presented. Also, the correctness of EMTDC modeling is confirmed by the old basic concepts and we think that this EMTDC model has the future powerful capability for application of railroad system analysis.
The Numerical Simulation of the Pressure wave for G7 Test Train in the Tunnel
Journal of the Korean Society for Railway, volume 5, issue 4, 2002, Pages 260~266
A numerical simulation has been performed to estimate the transient pressure variation in the tunnel when G7 test train passes through the test tunnel in the Kyoeng-Bu high-speed railway. A modified patched grid scheme is developed to handle the relative motion between a train and a tunnel. Also, a hybrid dimensional approach is proposed to calculate the train-tunnel interaction problem efficiently. An axi-symmetric unsteady Euler solve using the Roe's FDS is used for analyzing a complicated pressure field in tunnel during the test train is passing through the tunnel. Usually, this complex phenomenon depends ell the train speed, train length, tunnel length, blockage ratio between train and tunnel cross-sectional area, relative position between train and tunnel, etc. Therefore, numerical simulation should be done carefully in consideration of these factors. Numerical results in this study would be good guidance to make test plans, test equipments selection and to decide their measuring locations. They will also supply important information to the pressurization equipment for high-speed train.
New control strategy of propulsion system for the Transit Maglev System
Journal of the Korean Society for Railway, volume 5, issue 4, 2002, Pages 267~275
The traction drive system for the urban transit maglev system is described in this paper. To control the magnitude and frequency of the output voltage of induction motor transiently, the vector control strategy is generally used. But in case of the traction drive system for the railway vehicle, it is difficult to use the vector control caused by the one-pulse mode in the high speed region. Therefore, this paper proposes the control strategy combined the vector control in the low speed region and the slip frequency control in the high speed region. And also, the overmodulation PWM method is discussed to make the change to the one-pulse mode softly. The performance of the proposed traction drive system is verified by the MATLAB simulation results.
