  • On curved rail, the speed of train must be reduced in order to keep riding comfort. So, the train has the speed limitation in conventional railway line. But if the train has the tilting mechanism, the speed of train is able to be increased while maintaining the riding comfort. Generally, the tilting train is faster than the non-tilting train about 30% in curve. The tilting train technology and reduction of travel time has been carefully investigated by KRRI (Korea Railroad Research Institute). Based on the primary research result from KRRI, tilting control system and tilting operation interlace are considered its core technology to apply tilting train to Korean conventional railway. In this paper application of non-tilting pantograph to tilting system will be introduced. New type of bogie frame and system modification of vehicle are invented to apply non-tilting pantograph to tilting train.

  • In this paper we deal with a hydraulic tilting actuator to make a diagnosis of load characteristic acting on the tilting actuator of the tilting train. Tilting actuator in the tilting train plays a role of making tilt of the train when the train runs a curve section to make the train run without deceleration. However in the process of tilt the tilting actuator is affected by the load acting on the actuator, which has a possibility to make bogie vibration. In order to figure out the effect of the load on the tilting actuator a hydraulic tilting devices that are capable of tilting the train is proposed. The proposed devices are installed in the front bogie and in the rear bogie to make tilting of the train. The devices are consist of sensors that measure the load capacity of the actuator and displacement of the hydraulic cylinder stroke, control blocks to make synchronization of the two actuators, user interface block to monitor the status of the actuators. The effectiveness of the proposed hydraulic tilting actuators is presented by the experimental evaluation using actual tilting train.

  • A trial run of locally-developed tilting train has been in process on Chungbuk line since the test vehicle was first produced. For the system stabilization, interface verification among the systems including track, structure, catenary and signaling system, not to mention the rolling stock, is very crucial. In the area of wayside structure, the stability of track structure and train run shall be evaluated through the review of impact by increased speed by developed train on track structure. The study thus was intended to evaluate the impact on track while a tilting train is running the conventional line(ballast track), which is vulnerable to accelerated train speed. The evaluation of tilting train test running the part of Honam line was conducted to identify the impact on existing track performance by tilting train. To identify the performance of each part of track components while tilting train and high speed train were running the existing line, wheel load, rail bending stress, vertical displacement of rail and sleeper were compared so as to evaluate the expected impact by tilting train for improving the train speed.

  • This paper presents a development of 6DOF motion platform far a tilting train simulator. The tilting train simulator will be used to verify the tilting electronics and tilting control algorithm which are to be applied the Korean 180km/h tilting train. The tilting train simulator is composed of a 6-axis motion platform, a track generation system, a graphic user interface, and a visualization system with 1600mm-diameter dome screen. In this study, the 6DOF motion platform for a tilting train simulator has been designed and manufactured. The motion platform developed is a motion platform of Stewart type. The inverse kinematic analysis has been performed to determine the length of the links of the platform. Furthermore, the specification of the motors have been evaluated by the equation of motion of the platform.

  • This study presents parametric studies for design of a tilting mechanism to be used in 180km/h tilting train. The tilling mechanism is composed of 4 links, a lilting bolster old an electro-mechanical actuator. The movements of the tiling center, CG of the train body, coupler center and tilting actuator along variation of upper and lower span length have been verified by the kinematic analysis. Moreover, the inclination angle and the stroke of the tilting actuator according to the variation of the tilting angle from +8 degrees to -8 degrees have been investigated. From this study, the relation between the movements of the CG of the train body, coupler center and tilting actuator and the height of the tilting center could be evaluated.

  • Tilting train is the best solution to provide faster passenger service on conventional railway lines without too costly modification of infrastructure. Kinematic envelope gauging is very important when applying tilting trains % conventional railways with limited clearance. Due to tilting motion, the kinematic envelope of tilting train is larger than that of non-tilting train. This study was done to estimate the maximum dimension of tilting train being suitable for Korean conventional lines. In this study the two worst cases of tilting train movement was assumed and related suspension displacements, geometrical overthrow of train on une, wear of wheel & rail were combined to determine kinematic envelope.

  • The presence of low adhesion at the wheel-rail contact point can result in skid of train wheels, and the skid, in turn, results in flats appearing on the wheels. Thus, anti-skid control has a crucial role for safe braking and prevention from flats that could cause a disastrous train accident. This paper presents dynamic modeling of a tilting train and the brake system of the tilting train, and analyzes the anti-skid logic used in the tilting train. The validity of the analysis is demonstrated via simulation study using Simulink for skid and re-adhesion circumstances of the tilting train.

  • In this study, overturning safety for a tilting train has been evaluated. In the tilting train, the overturning safety is one of the most important factors because the carbody inclines inward a curve during curve negotiation. Dynamic analysis considering unbalanced lateral acceleration and carbody tilting has been carried out and the overturning safety for the tilting train has been evaluated according to height of CG of carbody. From these studies, the overturning safety for the tilting train under unbalanced lateral acceleration of $2m/s^2$ was superior to the conventional one at the same running speed.

  • Tilting bogie system allow the train to pass curve at higher speed without affecting passenger comfort. As the tilting trains offer the optimum means of providing faster and more comfortable rail service with minimum of environmental disturbance and capital investment, more than 14 countries have now adopted or are about to adopt tilting train technology. The Korean National Railroad is also planing to apply faster tilting train to the areas where the High speed rail service are not provided. This paper describes the design and mechanical characteristics of Bogie for 180 km/h Korean Tilting Train(TTX), which was done as a part of the Korean National R&D project.
