Crashworthiness of High Speed Rail Systems.

Sullivan, Laura.

Abstract: Rail crashworthiness research focuses on the ability of passenger rail equipment to protect its occupants in the event of a collision. The main goals of crashworthiness are to preserve space for the occupants and to limit the decelerations of the occupants to survivable levels. The goal of this research is to explore current high-speed trainsets and determine the level of structural cras... read more
