Paper Title:
The Analysis of Flow Characteristics for the High-Speed Train with Strong Crosswind Using CFD
  Abstract

High-speed trains are easily got overturned in strong crosswind. This paper aims to analyze the fluid field of high-speed train under different distortion angles by using computational fluid dynamics (CFD), hybrid grid method and finite volume method. The results shows that the vortexes roll by the separated airflow are alternating occur and develop along the body from the top and bottom. It causes a strong affect to the lateral stability of the train.
