Analysis on High-Speed Train Collision Based on Fault Tree

With the rapid development of the high-speed railway, its safety requires much more attention than ever. Collisions are one of the most severe incidents that can occur and can be affected by many factors. So, it is necessary to analyze it to reduce its possibility of occurrence. This paper establishes a high-speed train collision fault tree based on the analysis of security elements. Dealing with the fault tree by qualitative analysis, this paper reaches the minimal cut sets and the minimal path sets which show the factors most probably leading to the accident and most effective in preventing it. In the actual operation, the possibility of collision could be reduced by measures done to these factors.
