Integration of Systems Engineering and System Safety Analysis for Developing CBTC System
Journal of the Korean Society for Railway, volume 6, issue 1, 2003, Pages 1~9
This article proposes an integrated systems engineering and safety analysis model for safety-critical systems development. A methodology in system design for safety is considered during the early phase of the development life cycle of systems engineering process. The evolution of the design automation technology has enabled engineers to perform the model-based systems engineering. A Computer-Aided Systems Engineering(CASE) tool, CORE, is utilized to integrate the systems engineering model with a system safety analysis model. The results of the functional analysis phase can drive the analysis of the system safety. An example of Communications-Based Train Control(CBTC) system for an Automated Guided Transit(AGT) system demonstrated an application of the integrated model.
A Study on the Sound Insulation Performance of the Composite-Material Panel for Railroad Vehicle
Journal of the Korean Society for Railway, volume 6, issue 1, 2003, Pages 10~14
Since most of main noise sources of the railroad vehicle are transmitted to the passenger's ear through the vibration of the panel, the sound insulation performance of the panels should be high enough to protect the passenger's ear from the noisy environment. Specifically, the composite materials which are generally used for reducing the weight of the vehicle compartment have the low insulation performance, thus noise control actions should be taken appropriately by considering the insulation performance of the panels. In this study, the insulation performances of the inner/outer panels of the compartment are evaluated. In addition, the contribution of the insulation performance of aluminum door is estimated and compared to those of composite panels. The results can furnish an in-depth understanding of the insulation characteristics of the panel of railroad vehicle.
A Study of KHST Passenger Safety During Accidents by Computer Simulation Techniques
Journal of the Korean Society for Railway, volume 6, issue 1, 2003, Pages 15~20
The computer simulation techniques were adopted to evaluate the effects of seating positions of passenger under various accident scenarios. The baseline of computer simulation model was tuned by the sled impact tests which conducted under the upright and standard seating positions. This study shows the effect of relative velocity between occupant and struck vehicle while occupant is impacted to a front seat's seatback. Although, base on the current accident scenarios, The KHST is performed well enough to protect average adult male occupants. However, Results from the tests indicate small size occupant or higher impact speed may cause sever neck and femur injuries.
Fatigue Life Properties of Messenger Wire with Service Environments
Journal of the Korean Society for Railway, volume 6, issue 1, 2003, Pages 21~28
Environment-dependent fatigue life of Cu-Cd alloy wires used as messenger wires was investigated. Tensile test results showed the decrease of tensile strength and elongation of messenger wires by 3.7% and 16.8%, respectively, in used specimens when compared to new ones. Messenger wires used at industrial region for 26 yeras showed 35∼50% decrease in fatigue life, which is partly due to the in stress concentrations by formation of corrosion products at the surface. Single wires showed better fatigue properties than stranded wires, especially at low cycle regions with higher stresses. Stranded wires showed shorter fatigue lives than single wires because of friction between wires by surface contact. Service life of messenger wires was dependent upon the environments which they were exposed to. SO
and humidity deteriorated the fatigue properties by environmental degradation.
An Evaluation on the Seismic Stability of a Railway Bridge Pile Foundation Considering Soil-Structure Interaction
Journal of the Korean Society for Railway, volume 6, issue 1, 2003, Pages 29~40
In this study, the three dimensional pile-soil dynamic interaction analysis of the railway bridge pile foundation was performed using SASSI 2000 program and the applicability of SASSI 2000 about an evaluation of the seismic stability of a pile foundation was examined. The numerical analysis was executed on the two site of actual construction and input properties such as the acceleration of bedrock were estimated by one dimensional seismic response analysis using the Pro-SHAKE. Consequently, all the piles of the subject of investigation showed that displacement occurred within a permitted limit and the shear force and moment largely occurred at the point where the soil stiffness varied rapidly.
Evaluation of Comfortableness in Railroad Electric Rolling Stock - Focused on Temperature and Humidity -
Journal of the Korean Society for Railway, volume 6, issue 1, 2003, Pages 41~48
Most of people spends their times in indoor about 85% of a day. Thus, indoor is more serious than outdoor concerned with the health. We discussed comfortableness in a railroad electric rolling stock, and focused on temperature and humidity. Electric rolling stock is one of major public transportation system because of an increasing in population and heavy traffic problems. The passengers are under the influence of indoor air quality such as air temperature, relative humidity and air velocity. Ventilation system in electric rolling stock should be designed for the health and comfort. One of the main aims is to create an acceptable thermal environment without draught problem. The draught sensation increases when the air temperature decreases and the air velocity increases. Airflow in electric rolling stork is turbulent. Temperature and humidity gradients in electric rolling stock have been studied. And, the difference between mean temperature and rotative humidity measured at 0.7, 0.9, 1.2, 1.7m above the floor. It has been found that temperature and relative humidity with large fluctuations caused more draught complaints.

Development of a Wheel/Rail Geometric Contact Simulation Program
Journal of the Korean Society for Railway, volume 6, issue 1, 2003, Pages 58~65
Wheel/Rail geometric constraint relationships, such as effective conicity and gravitational stiffness, strongly influence the lateral dynamics of railway vehicles. In general, these geometric contact characteristics are nonlinear functions of the wheelset lateral displacement. There is a need to develop a wheel/rail geometric contact simulation program for wheels and rails with arbitrary profiles for the prediction of the dynamic behavior of railway vehicles. An algorithm to simulate any combination of wheels and rails is employed and a GUI for easy analysis is constructed. The simulation program is applied to KTX which will run on both KTX and conventional rails, two rail standards having different rail profiles. The results show that the two rail systems have different geometric contact characteristic
Legibility ＆ Recognition of Signs for Train Station
Journal of the Korean Society for Railway, volume 6, issue 1, 2003, Pages 66~72
Railway sign(graphic sign, diagraphics) designs require good recognition with universality to transmit accurate and speedy information as they connect people around the station and other transport systems. An important point of signs is how to design and deliver the contents to the viewers as a communication service tools. It needs to establish design guidelines with standardization and unified system to show their contents and images clearly like common language with visuality, attractivity and generality. These requisites are important for both aesthetics legibility and unified standards to maximize the effectiveness of pictograms for the use of the general public, who require systematic suggestion and management.
Intelligent Transportation Systems and Intermodal Transportation Information System for Railroad
Journal of the Korean Society for Railway, volume 6, issue 1, 2003, Pages 73~79
The Korean high speed railroad is scheduled to open in 2004. For railroad-based integrated transfer system, it is essential to develop the intermodal information system for easy transfer to other travel modes. The understanding of mode choices by KTX passengers is crucial for the intermodal transportation planning. Recent development of Intelligent Transportation Systems(ITS) made it possible for railroad users to access the transportation information in a cabin or waiting areas at the station. Development of intermodal transportation information system will influence the relative demand for traveling by train from competing other transportation modes. The research is focused on a general overview of the ITS with an emphasis on intermodal transportation information system.
