Evaluation of the Ride Comfort for High Speed Trains in Korea


Article Preview

Evaluation of the ride comfort for railway vehicles can be divided into two classes; the long-term evaluation of ride comfort and the momentary evaluation of ride comfort. In the present paper, the ride comfort of railway vehicles are investigated for high speed trains in Korea. The long-term ride comfort has been analyzed by a statistical method and the momentary ride comfort has been analyzed by using the longitudinal acceleration, the jerk and the stationary lateral acceleration.
