Overview

This book contains most of the papers presented at a recent conference on the use of computer-based techniques for the management, design, manufacture, and operations of railways and advanced passenger, freight, and transit systems. Papers are in grouped in sections on human factors, CCTV/communications, timetable and operations quality, traffic control, dynamics and wheel/rail interface, online scheduling and dispatching, and obstacle detection/collision analysis. Some specific topics examined are safety measures against deformation of the track, re-signalling with communications-based train control, application of dynamic programming to the optimization of the running profile of a train, and demand and ticket price elasticity analysis in the southern railway line of the Islamic Republic of Iran. Material will be of interest to planners, developers, manufacturers, and operators in mass transportation. There is no subject index. The US office of WIT Press is Computational Mechanics.
