Paper Title:
A Study on the Evaluation Methods of Running Safety for Railway Vehicle
  Abstract

The important factor to evaluate the running safety of a railway vehicle would be the interaction force between wheel and rail(derailment coefficient), for which is one of important factors to check the running safety of a railway vehicle that may cause a tragic accident. Especially, a newly developed vehicle that first runs commercially requires necessarily the measurement and evaluation of derailment coefficient for securing the safety of a vehicle while measuring the derailment coefficient in view of securing running safety could be the more important factor than any other factors. In the meanwhile, it should be also measured the interaction force between wheel and rail in view of track maintenance as well as running safety because increased weight of a vehicle while it is running over a railway may cause damages or destruction on track components such as rails, sleepers and etc consisted of track and any rapid distortion of track. For the reason, the study was intended to evaluate the curving performance and the running safety from the analyses of dynamic running properties, manufacturing wheel axes to measure the working operation of wheels/rail, static load test, derailment coefficient calculated by running test on main track, ratio of wheel unloading, lateral force tolerance of the vehicle that is newly manufactured and commercially running on Gwangju Urban Railway and describe the results.
