"... an excellent reference source that can be used for all aspects of rail systems research. It is a useful addition to any rail researcher’s book shelf."
―Professor Mark Robinson, NewRail, Newcastle University, UK

"This book is thoroughly researched and clearly presented with lots of helpful and well-illustrated examples. ...a very useful resource for railway engineers and anyone needing information on railway systems from around the world."
―Professor Simon Iwnicki, Institute of Railway Research, University of Huddersfield, UK

"... presents railway transportation system[s] in a simple and logical way. The book’s layout and structure makes it easier to understand and follow... A quick look over the content also indicates that it will be a useful reference to researchers especially coming from non-railway discipline[s] to perform research in railway."
―Uday Kumar, Luleå Railway Research Center, Luleå University of Technology, Sweden

"... this 475-page book is intended to provide a comprehensive overview of all engineering aspects of passenger and freight transport by rail."

Reseña del editor:

Incorporates More Than 25 Years of Research and Experience

Railway Transportation Systems: Design, Construction and Operation presents a comprehensive overview of railway passenger and freight transport systems, from design through to construction and operation. It covers the range of railway passenger systems, from conventional and high speed inter-urban systems through to suburban, regional and urban ones. Moreover, it thoroughly covers freight railway systems transporting conventional loads, heavy loads and dangerous goods. For each system it provides a definition, a brief overview of its evolution and examples of good practice, the main design, construction and operational characteristics, the preconditions for its selection, and the steps required to check the feasibility of its implementation.

Developed for Engineers, Designers, and Operators of Railway Systems

The book also provides a general overview of issues related to safety, interface with the environment, cutting-edge technologies, and finally the techniques that govern the stability and guidance of railway vehicles on track.

  • Contains information on the three main constituents of all railway systems: railway infrastructure, rolling stock, railway operations
  • Provides a methodology for testing the applicability of the implementation of railway systems
  • Offers an overview of issues related to the safety of railway systems in general
  • Describes their interfaces with the environment, the cutting-edge technologies that are already in place as well as those that are under research, and the techniques that govern the stability and guidance of railway vehicles on track

Railway Transportation Systems: Design, Construction and Operation suits students, and also those in the industry ‒ engineers, consultants, manufacturers, transport company executives ‒ who need some breadth of knowledge to guide them over the course of their careers.
