When a train passes a red aspect, this is called a Signal Passed at Danger event or SPAD. Sometimes it is easy to identify the SPAD cause but in other cases it is unclear why the incident occurred, especially if the system operated as usual and the train driver was trained and experienced just like his or her colleagues. In previous research,...

S2R is an innovation initiative of the European Union and the railway sector for new technologies into the railway sector. The results of this S2R-innovation initiative need to be implemented into the sector over time. The S2R-initiative consist of five major Innovation Programmes (IPs) that themselves consists of a set of demonstrations of...

The noise produced during a train pass-by originates from several different sources such as propulsion noise, noise from auxiliary equipment, aerodynamic noise and rolling noise. The rolling noise is radiated by the wheels and the track and is excited by the wheel and rail unevenness, usually referred to as roughness. The current TSI Noise...

In the present paper, laboratory produced, animal origin biofuels (swine lard and turkey lard had been used as raw material for biofuel production) were evaluated in terms of physicochemical parameters and compared with commercial mineral diesel fuel and its mixture with rapeseed oil methyl esters. Basing on the results of physicochemical...

The main aim of this report is to provide an analysis of the view-points offered by 27 participants during the foresight workshop on employment and skills situation in the European railway sector. The participants, mainly experts, policy specialists and social partners, were invited to react to the conclusions of the study on changes in...

Rail is a cost-effective and environment friendly freight transport modality when used efficiently. Stakeholders around Dutch ports are discouraged to choose rail due to uncertain train schedules and the dispersed nature of freight flows across terminals in the port. To understand the challenges and opportunities of freight transport using rail,...

Resilience engineering concepts can complement proceduralization of complex sociotechnical systems (STS). Proceduralization aims at defining precise and quantified system objectives, and at defining a process that describes and prescribes how to achieve those objectives. Although proceduralization has been successfully implemented to capture...

Resilience is defined as the ability to adaptively deal with system boundaries in the face of the unexpected and unforeseen (Branlat and Woods in AAAI Fall Symposium, 2010. http://www.aaai.org/ocs/index.php/FSS/FSS10/paper/viewPaper/2238). We hypothesize that drawing upon resilience-related knowledge is a prerequisite for such adaptivity. This...

This exploratory field study investigated the weak resilience signals of workload in a rail traffic control room. The goals of this research are to see whether real-time system information of a rail control post can be used to predict workload of a rail signaller in real-time, and to further improve this method. In order to investigate this...

Analysis of accidents in socio-technical systems frequently reveals unnoticed obstacles, which have grown to become the main cause of incubation and surprise at failure (Dekker, 2011). Thus far, it has proven to be a challenge to identify those unnoticed obstacles upfront among the tremendous number of events occurring during normal operations....

Rail dampers and sound absorbing plates have been tested on a high speed railway slab track in a walled cutting at a noise sensitive location. Their noise reduction has been determined from pass-by measurements during service and predicted using BEM calculations. The cutting depth, noise barrier height and configuration vary along the length of...

OCCUPATIONAL APPLICATIONS This article describes an observational study at a rail control post to measure workload weak resilience signals. A weak resilience signal indicates a possible degradation of a system's resilience, which is defined as the ability of a complex socio-technical system to cope with unexpected and unforeseen disruptions. A...

Noise control for an urban district starts by understanding the actual noise situation. A correct understanding is needed to take appropriate and cost efficient measures. For a noise burdened urban district, surrounded by road and rail traffic, the traffic noise as well as the annoyance has been measured. The size of the district is...

Reorganization of a rail control post may affect its ability to cope with unexpected disruptions. The term ‘resilience’, the ability to manage spare adaptive capacity when unexpected events occur, encapsulates this situation. This paper focuses on the workload adaptive capacity through a method for revealing workload weak-resilience-signals (WRS...
