SIMULATION OF TRAIN FOLLOWING BEHAVIOR IN H.S.G.T. SYSTEMS

A system in which vehicle speed is 400 km/hr and peak traffic density is 24 vehicles/hr (assuming braking rates of 0.05g and 0.1g for determining track capacity) is reported. Calculations suggest that the headway of 150 sec claimed by the proposers is realistic with a deceleration of 0.05g. Since this view has been challenged by railway operators, factors which may prevent the achievement of these headways are considered, including signalling systems, physical limitations, environmental variations, and traffic delays.
