STUDY OF A STRONG WIND WARNING SYSTEM

To prevent train derailment and rollover due to strong wind, operating restriction orders can be issued to ensure that the train is not exposed to excessive wind velocity. The article discusses JR East development of a strong wind warning system to support decision making for train operating restriction. The disaster prevention information system developed has meteorological observation facilities, such as rain gauges and anemometers, installed along tracks, and information from such facilities is sent to the traffic dispatcher on a real time basis.
