    High-Speed Transportation. The Madrid to Barcelona high-speed rail line opened in early , and traverses miles in only two hours and 38 minutes. In its first year, the line captured more than 50 percent of the travel between the country's two major economic centers, and significantly reduced the number of daily flights between the cities. High-speed rail (often abbreviated to "HSR") is a form of rail travel that uses trains that can travel at least km/h ( mph) on purpose-built tracks. The fastest trains are capable of speeds in excess of km/h ( mph), though operational top speeds in day-to .

Safety Theory and Technology of High-Speed Train Operation puts forward solutions for train dispatching and signal control.

Frequent railway incidents have threatened the safety of rail transport. Inmore than 12 trains collided. In the same year, a Spanish train derailed due to speed, and two of China’s high-speed trains collided. is a platform for academics to share research papers. This book presents cutting-edge theories, techniques, and methodologies in the multidisciplinary field of high-speed railways, sharing the revealing insights of elite scholars from China, the UK and J.

This is a book for everyone's inner child, with a history of the development of high speed technology, be it in Europe, the U.S., Japan, or even Australia.

Well, since the author, Peter Clark, hails from the land down under, this is to be expected, but aside from the chapter "Considerations for HSR in Australia" you'd hardly even notice/5(10). Conventional railway systems have been modified to make them travel at much higher speeds.

High-Speed Rail includes the main topics and basic principles of high-speed railways (HSRs). The book reflects new engineering and track developments, the most current design methods, as well as the latest industry standards and : Hamid Yaghoubi.

This ringbound book and CD-ROM disc set provides a comprehensive guide to maglev train technology and America's new program of high-speed passenger rail travel, the High-Speed Intercity Passenger Rail Program (HSIPR), announced by President Obama in January /5(2).

China's High-Speed Rail Technology An International Perspective. Editors: Fang, Youtong, Zhang, Yuehong (Helen) (Eds.) Free Preview. The first book to comprehensively compare high-speed rail technologies in China and other countries Includes the revealing insights of leading scholars from China, the UK, and Japan.

InJapan inaugurated the world’s first high-speed “bullet” train on the Osaka-Tokyo route, a distance of miles. According to the International Union of Railways, there are more t miles of high-speed rail (HSR) lines worldwide.

Taiwan High Speed Rail (THSR) is the high-speed railway of Taiwan consisting of one line that runs approximately km ( mi) along the west coast, from the capital Taipei to the southern city of construction and operations managed by a private company, Taiwan High Speed Rail Corporation (THSRC; TWSE: ), which also operates the line, the total cost of the project was NT Track gauge: 1, mm (4 ft 8 ¹⁄₂ in) standard gauge.

High-speed rail (HSR) is a type of rail transport that runs significantly faster than traditional rail traffic, using an integrated system of specialized rolling stock and dedicated tracks. While there is no single standard that applies worldwide, new lines in excess of kilometres per hour ( mph) and existing lines in excess of kilometres per hour ( mph) are widely considered to.

High-speed rail in Europe is emerging as an increasingly popular and efficient means of transport. The first high-speed rail lines in Europe, built in the s and s, improved travel times on intra-national corridors.

Since then, several countries have built extensive high-speed networks, and there are now several cross-border high-speed rail links.
