  4. Resilient Wayside Structures and Passenger Car Survivability

    SBC: PROTECTION ENGINEERING CONSULTANTS LLC            Topic: 171FR3

    Additional passenger fatalities and injuries can occur during derailments due to interaction with wayside structures, such as catenary poles, bridge abutments, and discontinuities in third rails at highway grade crossings. Resilient wayside structures can reduce these risks, by lessening the amount of intrusion, penetration, and passenger motion. PEC and Arup will work together to develop resilien ...
