Research on Adhesion and Non-Adhesion Braking Characteristics for High-Speed Train
The emergency braking deceleration and braking distance of high-speed train were studied under the conditions of adhesion brake on dry and humid rail surfaces, and adhesion and non-adhesion composite brake on humid rail surface. The average emergency braking deceleration was calculated by the area-method. The results show that the braking performance is affected significantly by the wheel/rail adhesion state and the braking performance of high-speed train can be improved by applying the adhesion and non-adhesion composite brake in the state of humid rail surface.
