abstract

In this paper, a simple and efficient numerical method to solve for the dynamic interaction of a Shinkansen train (high-speed train in Japan) and railway structure during an earthquake is given. The motion of the train is modeled in multibody dynamics with nonlinear springs and dampers used to connect components. An efficient mechanical model for contact dynamics between wheel and rail during an earthquake is presented. The railway structure is modeled with various finite elements. A three-dimensional nonlinear spring element based on a trilinear elastic-plastic material model is given for the concrete railway structure during an earthquake. A loop structure model has been devised to obtain an approximated combined motion of the train and railway structure during an earthquake. A modal method has been developed to solve large-scale nonlinear equations of motion of the train and railway structure effectively. Based on the present method, a computer program DIASTARS for the dynamic interaction of a Shinkansen train and railway structure during an earthquake has been developed. Numerical examples are demonstrated.
