Development of a Track Management Method for Shinkansen Speed Increases

This paper describes the development of a railroad track management indicators designed to represent ride comfort when the running speed of Shinkansen high speed trains is increased. Focus is on determining if existing track management indicators would be adequate or if new indicators better representing the effect of track irregularity of longer wavelength would be required. The paper relates that researchers focused on testing track irregularity resulting from vertical vibration
