  1. 1. Countermeasures against railway ground and track vibrations

    Författare :Robert Hildebrand; KTH; []
    Nyckelord :ground vibration; vibration screen; track vibration; railway vibration; seismic barrier;

    Sammanfattning : Railway track and ground vibrations are considered, with anemphasis on methods of mitigation ("countermeasures"), forapplication to wayside disturbance problems.Original field measurements from two sites in Sweden, aswell as borrowed measurements from Norway, provide vibrationresults at many points on the track, on and underneath theground surface, for a variety of trains, both with and withoutcountermeasures in-place.

  2. 2. Railway Track Stiffness : Dynamic Measurements and Evaluation for Efficient Maintenance

    Författare :Eric Berggren; Mats Berg; Laurent Schmitt; KTH; []
    Nyckelord :ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Railway track stiffness; maintenance; soil dynamics; measurement; simulation; vibration; Vehicle engineering; Farkostteknik;

    Sammanfattning : Railway track stiffness (vertical track load divided by track deflection) is a basic parameter oftrack design which influences the bearing capacity, the dynamic behaviour of passing vehiclesand, in particular, track geometry quality and the life of track components. Track stiffness is abroad topic and in this thesis some aspects are treated comprehensively. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Vibration mitigation of high-speed railway bridges : Application of fluid viscous dampers

    Författare :Sarah Tell; Raid Karoumi; Ülker-Kaustell Mahir; Andreas Andersson; Bill F. Jr. Spencer; KTH; []
    Nyckelord :ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; dynamics; vibration mitigation; railway bridge; high-speed trains; bridge deck acceleration; passive damping; fluid viscous dampers; retrofit; dynamik; vibrationsdämpning; järnvägsbro; höghastighetståg; brobaneacceleration; passiv dämpning; viskösa dämpare; eftermontering; Civil and Architectural Engineering; Byggvetenskap;

    Sammanfattning : At the moment of writing, an expansion of the Swedish railway network has started, by constructions of new lines for high-speed trains. The aim is to create a high-speed connection between the most populous cities in Sweden - Stockholm, Göteborg and Malmö, and the rest of Europe. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Vibration mitigation of high-speed railway bridges : Application of damping devices in theory and practice

    Författare :Sarah Tell; Raid Karoumi; Andreas Andersson; Ülker-Kaustell Mahir; José Maria Goicolea; KTH; []
    Nyckelord :ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; vibration mitigation; high-speed railway bridges; damping devices; retrofit; numerical analysis; hybrid simulation; field experiment; vibrationsdämpning; järnvägsbroar för höghastighetståg; dämpare; eftermonteringsmetod; numerisk analys; hybridsimulering; fältförsök; Bro- och stålbyggnad; Structural Engineering and Bridges;

    Sammanfattning : The dynamic response of railway bridges is an important aspect to consider, as the repetitive loading from passing trains may result in excessive vibrations of the bridge deck. Several design criteria are developed in order to assure the structural safety and passenger comfort during train crossings of a bridge. LÄS MER

  5. 5. The impact of railway vibration and noise on sleep

    Författare :Michael Smith; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; railway vibration; noise; sleep disturbance; polysomnography; cardiovascular disease;

    Sammanfattning : Sleep is a vital component of good health, and sleep loss is associated with impaired cognition, decreased psychomotor performance, cardiovascular disease, adverse effects on endocrine and metabolic function, negative mood, impaired memory, and more. A growing burden of freight transportation on global railway networks will likely lead to an increase in nocturnal vibration and noise at nearby dwellings. LÄS MER
