Effect of Different Structure Type Traffic On Railway Line Capacity

Abstract

The article points to methods of analyzing railway traffic conditions based on two parameters: capacity and delay of trains. The impact of the differentiated railway type structure on the capacity of the railway line was presented. Particular attention has been paid to the assessment of commonly used simplifications in analyzes.

Evaluation of Train Crews Schedule in Terms of Robustness

Abstract

The evaluation of team work schedules in complex rail transport conditions is related to the robustness of individual solutions. In rail systems there are many aims that are important for users. One of the most important aims is to find a feasible solution. It is characterized by the non-conflicting schedule with another train, minimizing the travel time of the trainset and taking into account the priority of train. The problem of responding to delays in terms of reorganisation of work, prevention of delay propagation and real-time schedule changes is important. Schedules are built in a way that ensures the best use of work time. This has a negative impact on critical situations. The study analysed the changes of the conductor’s team to another train depending on the buffer time provided in work plan, real time needed for change and train delays.
