Dynamics of Rail Transit Tunnel Systems Book Review:

Dynamics of Rail Transit Tunnel Systems develops the dynamic theory of a rail transit tunnel system and provides research methods for the evaluation of long-term settlement of rail transit tunnels in soft soil, the service performance of tunnel structures, and the characterization of environmental vibration induced by trains. In recent years, a large number of rail transit tunnels have been constructed and put into operation, particularly in China. To evaluate the time-dependent degradation of tunnel structures and train-induced environmental vibration, a reliable model must be established to determine the dynamic response of a vehicle-track-tunnel-soil system, hence the introduction of this timely resource. Provides full theoretical background to help the reader gain an in-depth understanding of the various methods used for dynamic analysis of a rail transit tunnel system Develops the dynamics theory and method of a rail transit tunnel system under the context of challenging engineering problems Presents methods for analyzing the dynamic responses of rail transit tunnel-soil systems Looks at problems that need to be solved in the future and proposes potential directions for future research

Application of Dynamic Vibration Absorbers on Double deck Circular Railway Tunnels to Mitigate Railway induced Ground borne Vibration Book Review:

This dissertation is concerned with investigating the efficiency of dynamic vibration absorbers (DVAs) as measures to mitigate ground-borne vibrations induced by railway traffic in double-deck tunnels. The main topics of the dissertation are the coupling of a set of longitudinal distributions of DVAs to the interior floor of a double-deck tunnel dynamic model, the computation of the response of this coupled system due to train traffic and obtaining the optimum design parameters of the DVAs to minimize this response. To address the first concern, a methodology for coupling a set of longitudinal distributions of DVAs to any railway subsystem in the context of a theoretical dynamic model of railway infrastructure is developed. The optimum design parameters of the DVAs are obtained using an optimization process based on a genetic algorithm. The effectiveness of the DVAs is assessed by two response parameters, which are used as objective functions to be minimized in the optimization process: the energy flow radiated upwards by the tunnel and the maximum transient vibration value (MTVV) in the building near the tunnel. The model used to compute the former is a two-and-a-half dimensional (2.5D) semi-analytical model of a train-track-tunnel-soil system that considers a full-space soil model, and the one used to compute the latter is a hybrid experimental-numerical model of a train-track-tunnel-soil-building system. In the hybrid model, a numerical model of the track-tunnel system based on 2.5D coupled finite element-boundary element formulation along with a dynamic rigid multi-body model of the vehicle is used to compute the response in the tunnel wall, and then, the response in the building is computed using experimentally obtained transfer functions between the tunnel wall and the building. The triaxial response in the building is used to compute the MTVV. An alternative option to evaluate the MTVV in a building is to use a fully theoretical model of the train-track-tunnel-soil-building system. In the context of this modeling strategy, a computationally efficient method to calculate the 2.5D Green's functions of a layered soil is also presented. The results show that the DVAs would be an effective mitigation measure for railway-induced vibrations in double-deck tunnels as reductions up to 6.6 dB in total radiated energy flow and up to 3.3 dB in the vibration inside a nearby building are achieved in the simulations presented in this work.

Railway Noise and Vibration Book Review:

Railways are an environmentally friendly means of transport well suited to modern society. However, noise and vibration are key obstacles to further development of the railway networks for high-speed intercity traffic, for freight and for suburban metros and light-rail. All too often noise problems are dealt with inefficiently due to lack of understanding of the problem. This book brings together coverage of the theory of railway noise and vibration with practical applications of noise control technology at source to solve noise and vibration problems from railways. Each source of noise and vibration is described in a systematic way: rolling noise, curve squeal, bridge noise, aerodynamic noise, ground vibration and ground-borne noise, and vehicle interior noise. Theoretical modelling approaches are introduced for each source in a tutorial fashion Practical applications of noise control technology are presented using the theoretical models Extensive examples of application to noise reduction techniques are included Railway Noise and Vibration is a hard-working reference and will be invaluable to all who have to deal with noise and vibration from railways, whether working in the industry or in consultancy or academic research. David Thompson is Professor of Railway Noise and Vibration at the Institute of Sound and Vibration Research, University of Southampton. He has worked in the field of railway noise since 1980, with British Rail Research in Derby, UK, and TNO Institute of Applied Physics in the Netherlands before moving to Southampton in 1996. He was responsible for developing the TWINS software for predicting rolling noise. Discusses fully the theoretical background and practical workings of railway noise Includes the latest research findings, brought together in one place Forms an extended case study in the application of noise control techniques

Vehicle Track Coupled Dynamics Book Review:

This book systematically presents the theory, numerical implementation, field experiments and practical engineering applications of the ‘Vehicle–Track Coupled Dynamics’. Representing a radical departure from classic vehicle system dynamics and track dynamics, the vehicle–track coupled dynamics theory considers the vehicle and track as one interactive and integrated system coupled through wheel–rail interaction. This new theory enables a more comprehensive and accurate solution to the train–track dynamic interaction problem which is a fundamental and important research topic in railway transportation system, especially for the rapidly developed high-speed and heavy-haul railways. It has been widely applied in practical railway engineering. Dr. Wanming Zhai is a Chair Professor of Railway Engineering at Southwest Jiaotong University, where he is also chairman of the Academic Committee and Director of the Train and Track Research Institute. He is a member of the Chinese Academy of Sciences and one of the leading scientists in railway system dynamics. Professor Zhai is Editor-in-Chief of both the International Journal of Rail Transportation, published by Taylor & Francis Group, and the Journal of Modern Transportation, published by Springer. In addition, he is a trustee of the International Association for Vehicle System Dynamics, Vice President of the Chinese Society of Theoretical and Applied Mechanics, and Vice President of the Chinese Society for Vibration Engineering. /div
