Research

 

 

The assessment of vibrations induced by the railway traffic is becoming an important subject for the railway operator in the renovation of existing lines or the installation of new lines. Georges’ research mainly focuses on environmental impact of vibrations induced by the railway traffic. The research work performed wants to establish a reliable methodology, using a two-step approach, in order to predict, from the design stage of a vehicle or of a track, the forces transmitted by the vehicle to the track-soil system and consequently the vibration levels in the surroundings. Mainly developed for the urban area, the proposed model was successfully validated for high-speed line cases and domestic line cases, for various rail and wheel irregularities. This research is a field of the UMONS Research Institute for the Science and Management of Risks (more details can be found on this dedicated page).

 


 

As a part of the research activities of MRDV lab, Georges is still working on the development of tools related to the simulation of multibody models. The developed framework EasyDyn dedicated to the simulation of multibody system is based on the generalized coordinates offering the advantage to work with a minimal set of equations of motion. Composed of a C++ library and a symbolic tool, the framework was mainly developed with the concern of readability and compacity. Initially devoted to education, it is successfully used for research purposes: the railway ground vibrations model partially based on a multibody model for the vehicle/track dynamics prediction, the dynamic modelling of human walking with the help of Virtual Muscle model, the robotic and control application related to the six-legged robot or the modelling of an automatic gearbox using stabilized penalty functions for the actuators.

 


 

Signal processing for effective vibration analysis: the problem of acquiring an accurate time-varying signal from a vibration sensor is of great interest and is largely used to overcome the assessment of specific indicators. In the case of vibratory nuisance, the choice of a relevant indicator is unavoidable and this indicator is defined differently according to the selected reference text (standards or recommendations). In addition to the interest of comparing values to well-defined and well-known limits, the knowledge of these standards allows the use of suitable indicators. It turns out that additional research is required to provide a definitive assessment of the effects of vibrations. On the other hand, vibration spectra contain useful information of the vibration source and an efficient selection of signal processing tools can offer high performance (e.g. train speed calculation using ground vibrations signals).

 


 

Soil-structure interaction is another research topic. This topic also induces the characterisation of geometrical and dynamic properties of soil, in high connection with railway-induced ground vibrations. Structural response of a building simulated during the passage of a tram, discrete modelling of vertical track-soil coupling for vehicle-track dynamics, or dynamic analysis of embedded foundations like pile groups, are some example of research areas. All this research shows the importance of soil-structure interactions, using numerical formulation based on the finite element method adapted for time domain simulations. The proposed analysis methodology provides a convincing example of the capability of the finite element method to reproduce foundation response to dynamic loading. Some specific numerical challenge (stability of integration scheme, reasonable computational run times) are associated to this research.

 


 

Other research concerns, in a general way, the modal analysis, in connection with the computed-aided teaching, with the development of a MatLab/Scilab toolbox EasyMod, related to the experimental modal analysis. This toolbox provides several functions in order to perform a complete experimental modal analysis with different kind of identification methods (SISO such as the circle-fit, MIMO such the LSCE, …). Such efforts that naturally are in keeping with structural vibration problems (development of dynamic absorbers, fatigue assessment of aerospace devices under vibratory environment, design of suspension, …) using modal analysis, operational deflection shape, … For instance, EasyMod can be used to solve structural dynamic problems and to simply identify how structures vibrate from a non-mathematical perspective.

 


 

Download detailed in-situ experiments on high speed rail railway lines in Belgium. Three sites were tested in the South of Belgium, near the French border, and vibrations were measured up to 100m from each line. Several high impact findings were made regarding the effect of track type and train speed on vibration levels. A selection of the experimental results are open access. This research was undertaken in collaboration with D. P. Connolly, lecturer at Heriot Watt University in the UK.
