Vertical vibration modelling and vibration response analysis of Chinese high-speed train passengers at different locations of a high-speed train

To study the vibration of a passenger's head and internal organs at different locations of a high-speed train, a 9-degrees-of-freedom (DOF) model of seated passengers is proposed in this paper, and its parameters of the damping coefficients and stiffnesses are identified. Next, the response of the head and internal organs is simulated by applying the vibrational stimulation generated by a 27-DOF vehicle model under track irregularity. Moreover, by applying the measured vibration signal, the following conclusions can be drawn: (1) the weakest response is detected at the centre of the compartment of the wagon, and a stronger response is detected at the centre of the bogie, with the rolling motion having a greater effect 1 m away from the centre of the bogie; (2) the response of the human internal organs is stronger than that of the head under stimulation with a lower frequency of less than 3 Hz, and a similar conclusion can be drawn in the range of 5 to 8 Hz. However, if the frequency is in the range between 8 and 15 Hz, the situation is entirely different. The responses of both the head and internal organs are reduced at frequencies over 20 Hz; (3) from the real application, it can be inferred that the greatest response can be detected at approximately 3 Hz for internal organs and at 8 Hz or higher for the head.
