A Study on the Aerodynamic Safety of Skirt Board Structure on Maglev Train
Utilizing CFD, the influences of skirt board structure on high speed maglev train's aerodynamic resistance and the stability under crosswind are studied. Studies have been conducted on the aerodynamic of skirt boards which located on different positions. Simulation analyses are finished with maglev train running at speed of 350km/h for both with and without crosswind. Study results show that, some skirt boards are likely to be pulled apart, further, lower the safety limit speed.
