Assessment and improvement of railway track safety
2009 (English)In: Special issue on heavy haul and innovative development: [the Ninth International Heavy Haul Conference (IHHA 2009) was held on 22 - 24 June in Shanghai, P.R. China], Los Angeles: Sage Publications, Incorporated , 2009, 91-98 p.Conference paper (Refereed)
In this paper, an approach has been developed to assess safety of the railway track by estimating the probability of derailment. Models for probability of derailment are developed based on undetected rail breaks and poor track quality using Petri-Nets and Monte Carlo simulations. The Effect of inspection intervals on lowering the probability has been analysed. The performance of the model is illustrated by an example from a track section of the iron ore line of Banverket (Swedish National Rail Administration).
