In a rapidly changing world, with increasing competition in all sectors of transportation, railways are in a period of restructuring their management and technology. New methods of organization are introduced, commercial and tariff policies change radically, a more entrepreneurial spirit is required. At the same time, new high-speed tracks are being constructed and old tracks are renewed, high-comfort rolling stock vehicles are being introduced, logistics and combined transport are being developed. Awareness of environmental issues and search for greater safety give to the railways a new role within the transportation system. Meanwhile, methods of analysis have significantly evolved, principally due to computer applications and new ways of thinking and approaching old problems. Therefore it becomes necessary to come up with a new scientific approach to tackle management and engineering aspects of railways, to understand in-depth the origins and inter-relationships of the various situations and phenomena and to suggest the appropriate methods and solutions to solve the various emerging problems. This book aims to cover the need for a new scientific approach for railways. It is written for railway managers, economists and engineers, consulting economists and engineers, students of schools of engineering, transportation and management. The book is divided into three distinct parts: Part A deals with the management of railways, Part B deals with the track and, Part C deals with rolling stock and environmental topics. Each chapter of the book contains the necessary theoretical analysis of the phenomena studied, the recommended solutions, applications, charts and design of the specific railway component. In this way, both the requirement for a theoretical analysis is met, and the need of the railway manager and engineer for tables, nomographs, regulations, etc. is satisfied. Railways in Europe have separated activities of infrastructure from those of operation. In other parts of the world, however, railways remain unified. The book addresses both situation. Railways present great differences in their technologies. Something may be valid for one such technology, but not for another. To overcome this problem, regulations of the International Union of Railways (UIC) as well as European Standardization (CEN) have been used to the greatest extent possible. Whenever a specific technology or method is presented, the limits of its application are clearly emphasized.

This book aims to cover the need for a new scientific approach for railways. It is intended to be of use to railway managers, economists and engineers, consulting economists and engineers, students of schools of engineering, transportation, economics, and management. The book is divided into three parts, which deal successively with management, track, and rolling stock, environment and safety. Each chapter of the book contains the necessary theoretical analysis of the phenomena studied, the recommended solutions, applications, charts and design of the specific railway component. In this way, both the requirement for a theoretical analysis is met, and the need of the railway manager and engineer for tables, nomographs, regulations, etc. is satisfied. Railways in Europe have separated activities of infrastructure from those of operation. In other parts of the world, however, railways remain unified. The book addresses both situations (separated and unified railways). Railways present great differences in their technologies. Something may be valid for one such technology, but not for another. To overcome this problem, regulations of the International Union of Railways (UIC) as well as European Standardization (CEN) and European Technical Specifications for Interoperability (TSIs) have been used to the greatest extent possible. Whenever a specific technology or method is presented, the limits of its application are clearly emphasized.

Der europäische Schienenpersonenfernverkehr befindet sich in einem tief greifenden Umbruch, der die Unternehmen auch in der betrieblichen Planung vor neue Herausforderungen stellt. Durch die Deregulierung sollten die Unternehmen grundsätzlich in die Lage versetzt werden, eine umsetzungsfähige Unternehmensplanung aufzubauen. Jedoch ist noch relativ wenig über die Planung von Schienenpersonenfernverkehrsunternehmen bekannt. Am Beispiel des Planungssystems der DB Fernverkehr AG verfolgt diese Arbeit einen umfassenden Erklärungs- und Strukturierungsbeitrag, um so ein Verständnis für die Rahmenbedingungen, die Einflussfaktoren sowie die Gestaltungsmöglichkeiten eines solchen Planungssystems zu schaffen und Möglichkeiten für eine Verbesserung der Unternehmensplanung von Schienenpersonenfernverkehrsunternehmen aufzuzeigen. Das Buch wendet sich an Praktiker im Bereich des Managements und der Planung von Schienenpersonenverkehrsuntennehmen ebenso wie an Dozenten und Studierende der Wirtschaftswissenschaften mit den Schwerpunkten Unternehmensplanung und Verkehrswissenschaften.

Human errors, as well as deliberate sabotage, pose a considerable danger to passengers riding on the modern railways and have created disastrous consequences. To protect civilians against both intentional and unintentional threats, rail transportation has become increasingly automated. Railway Safety, Reliability, and Security: Technologies and Systems Engineering provides engineering students and professionals with a collection of state-of-the-art methodological and technological notions to support the development and certification of ‘real-time safety-critical’ railway control systems, as well as the protection of rail transportation infrastructures.

The book comprises a number of research papers presented at several Computers in Railways Conferences. It has been compiled by Giuseppe Sciutto, from Università degli Studi di Genova, and contains selected papers originating from different countries, such as France, Germany, Japan, Italy, Spain, USA, and Taiwan. There is a strong lack of agreement regarding the safety approaches adopted by different transportation modes while the sudden increased demands for security for both freight and passengers has provided a more uniform methodological approach. The papers in this volume give an overview of the current state-of-the-art analytical approaches, methods and simulation tools for the modelling and analysis of the safety and security of transport networks. Topics include e.g. the role of the notified bodies in the process of the railway liberalization, safety at the platform, computer architectures and safety integrity level apportionment, potential dangerous object detection on railway ballast using digital image processing, as well as taking advantage of some complementary modelling methods to meet critical system requirement specifications.

Mit der Renaissance des Schienenverkehrs hat das Spezialgebiet "Schienenfahrzeugdynamik" an Bedeutung gewonnen. Auf entsprechendes Interesse wird das erste Buch im deutschsprachigen Raum stoßen, das hier seinen Schwerpunkt hat. Obwohl es auf der Vorlesung "Schienenfahrzeugdynamik" an der TU Berlin basiert und Vorkenntnisse bezüglich Mechanik, Schwingungslehre und angewandter Mathematik voraussetzt, spricht es auch den Praktiker an. Das Buch behandelt die Vertikaldynamik bis hin zu Komfortbetrachtungen und die Lateraldynamik so weit, daß dem Leser ein Verständnis der Stabilität von Schienenfahrzeugen möglich ist. Den Vorgängen im Kontakt Rad/Schiene wird besondere Aufmerksamkeit gewidmet. Es enthält die jüngsten Erkenntnisse aus Forschung und Bahnpraxis. Die Autoren gehen detailliert auf die spezielle Terminologie der Schienenfahrzeugdynamik und benachbarter Fachgebiete ein.
