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

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
