Potential Explosive Device on a Commuter Train: What Drives Train Drivers to Deviate from the Security Procedure?Potential Explosive Device on a Commuter Train: What Drives Train Drivers to Deviate from the Security Procedure?

Explosives pose a major threat to urban metro rail systems. Train drivers are therefore expected to regularly perform security procedures in response to reports of suspicious items on the train. This study was conducted to develop a multi-factorial account of...

Passenger Stability Within Moving Railway Vehicles: Limits on Maximum Longitudinal AccelerationPassenger Stability Within Moving Railway Vehicles: Limits on Maximum Longitudinal Acceleration 

Increasing the acceleration and deceleration of trains within a railway network can improve the performance of the system. However, the risk of passengers losing their balance and falling is also increased. The purpose of this paper is therefore to examine the effect of longitudinal vehicle accelerations on passenger safety and comfort...
