SAFETY FACTORS RELATED TO HIGH-SPEED RAIL AND MAGLEV PASSENGER SYSTEMS: RESEARCH PROBLEM STATEMENTS

The research problem statements included in this circular were generated at the Workshop on Safety Factors Related to High-Speed Rail and Maglev Passenger Systems, which was jointly sponsored by the Federal Railroad Administration (FRA) and the Transportation Research Board (TRB). It was held in St. Louis, Missouri, in April 1991. The major topics addressed at the workshop were system design criteria and operations; signal, control, and power supply systems; high-speed rail track structure and maglev guideway; and vehicles. Workshop attendees divided into working groups to identify research needs. They prepared approximately 70 research problem statements.
