In Hong Kong, like all the other big cities in the world, railways play an important role in the transportation system. How can we design a good railway system to meet all the needs of different parties? In this lecture, we are very honoured to invite Dr Glenn Frommer, who previously worked at the Mass Transit Railway (MTR) Corporation in Hong Kong for more than 30 years, to share his experiences with us.
What You’ll Learn
In this lecture, Dr Frommer will walk us through 4 key topics of designing a railway, focusing on acoustic issues including noise control and the systems approach, wheel/rail interface and vehicle design, station design, and trackform design with illustrations, examples, and in-depth explanations.
