Special Session: RW2016-S20
Mechanics of High-Speed Trains
Session Aims and Scope
High-speed trains are complex mechanical systems that contain many dynamic coupling problems such as fluid/solid coupling, wheel/rail coupling, pantograph/catenary interaction and aerodynamic/structure/vehicle coupling. These multidisciplinary coupling problems influence seriously the motion stability and the safety of operation.
The multidisciplinary dynamic coupling responses have been investigated with numerical tools and experimental methods in recent years. The physical mechanism of instantaneous dynamic responses and the calculated methods of single- or multi-disciplinary topics are dealth in this session, working as a forum to present recent advancements, exchange ideas and point directions for future research.
The Session will cover, but not limited to, the following topics:
