In this study, using the analysis program DIASTARS III that is able to take into account the dynamic interaction between railway vehicles and railway structures, we conducted seismic train-running analysis on a model line that is about 4.8 km long. And we identified the relative weak structures of seismic train-running safety in the model line. Full article
