Ballast Railroad Design: SMART-UOW Approach

Buddhima Indraratna, Trung Ngo
June 28, 2018

The rail network plays an essential role in transport infrastructure worldwide. A ballasted track is commonly used for several reasons, including economic considerations, load bearing capacity, rapid drainage and ease of maintenance. Given the ever-increasing demand for trains to carry heavier axle...

Vehicle Feedback and Driver Situation Awareness

Guy H. Walker, Neville A. Stanton, Paul M. Salmon
June 05, 2018

A potentially troubling aspect of modern vehicle design – some would argue - is a trend towards isolating the driver and reducing vehicle feedback, usually in the name of comfort and refinement but increasingly because of automation. There can be little doubt cars have become more civilised over...
