About this book

This volume entitled contains the results obtained by a symposium which took place in Paris, France, on May 04-05, 1999 hosted by the International Union of Railways, UIC. This symposium was organised within the framework of the Brite/Euram project TRANSAERO. The TRANSAERO project bundles the expertise of three railway companies and eight universities and research institutions in Europe to improve the physical understanding of the timedependent effects of side-wind forces, train passing and pressure waves in tunnels. The goal was to find efficient and economically satisfying solutions to these problems by simultaneously regarding high-speed rolling stock, infrastructure and operating conditions.
