About this book

This book explores the mechanisms behind high-speed railway (HSR) traffic accidents caused by natural disasters, employing the concept of “dynamic tracking, situation assessment, and early warning management”. It establishes a natural disaster warning system for ensuring the safety of HSR operations, while providing insightful management measures and methods that address the challenges posed by natural disasters. By analyzing the current state and objective circumstances of HSR safety operations, this book distinguishes itself from similar publications both domestically and internationally. It conducts an in-depth analysis of the safe operation of high-speed railways by adopting a systems science approach that effectively merges theory with practical applications. Furthermore, the book explores the developmental trajectory of high-speed railways and investigates the determination of their safe operation. It comprehensively evaluates the safety of high-speed railway operations by employing mathematical theories of uncertainty, subsequently presenting detailed measures to effectively tackle safety concerns related to high-speed railways.

Chapter 2. An Earthquake Disaster Warning System for HSR Operation Safety
Abstract
Earthquake is one of the natural disasters that threaten HSR operation safety. Human beings have limited ability to prevent earthquakes effectively. At present, the earthquake forecasting technology is not very mature.

Chapter 3. A Lightning Warning System for HSR Operation Safety
Abstract
Since the start of large-scale HSR operation, lightning strikes have been one of the main factors causing the failure of the traction power supply system and signal system.

Chapter 4. A Temperature Warning System for HSR Operation Safety
Abstract
High-speed railway adopts a ballastless track structure and interregional seamless line technology, which can facilitate smooth running, low maintenance cost of rolling stock and track structure and long service life of the line.

Chapter 5. A Rainstorm Warning System for the HSR Safety Operation
Abstract
Railway transportation is less affected by weather and other environmental factors than other forms of transportation and can ensure the continuity and punctuality of operation.

Chapter 6. A Ecological Warning System for the HSR Safety Operation
Abstract
Locating in the intersection area of the circus Pacific tectonic zones, where the two active tectonic zones converge, is the fundamental reason for the wide variety of geological disasters in the country to be blame for.

Chapter 7. A Crosswind Disaster Warning System for the HSR Safety Operation
Abstract
Buoyancy and pitch moment generated during the running, of high-speed trains increases with the running speed, making the train in a “floating” state.

Chapter 8. An Integrated Natural Disaster Warning System for the HSR Safety Operation
Abstract
For the HSR system, the safe operation is the top priority. To avoid potential natural catastrophes from disrupting the HSR's routine operation, the HSR should construct an integrated monitoring system for natural disaster warning.
