The use of bystal elements in bridge spans
Petrushenko I.A., Averchenko G.A.

The object of the research is the structures of spans made of two types of steel of different strengths. The article examines the effectiveness of the use of the bisteel beams of bridge structures based on a technical and economic analysis, which consists of determining the value of construction and structural coefficients for beams of the same spans in order to identify metal savings. In the course of the study, the effectiveness of using steels of various strengths in a set was confirmed. The material described in the article can be used as the basis for the practical application of bisteel spans.

Dynamic model of the Moscow monorail transport system using magnetolevitation technology
Fironov A.N., Kostenko A.S.

Aim: The Moscow monorail transport system, which has been in operation for more than 18 years and uses a linear electric drive, has proven its efficiency, reliability, and safety, but at the same time there is a need to modernize it. The proposed modernization is based on new trolleys, in the design of which electromagnets and a linear motor are combined.

Materials and methods: Based on a model-oriented approach in Simscape – Simulink applications of the MATLAB ® environment, a dynamic model of a two-car rolling stock of a monorail transport system using magnetolevitation technology has been developed.

Results: A general description of the model and its subsystems is given. The results of modeling taking into account the nervousness of the track structure are presented.

Conclusion: The developed model allows you to choose the most rational design parameters of trolleys, elastic-dissipative suspension elements of rolling stock, electromagnetic control systems. The proposed monorail transport system can be implemented in Russian cities where, for various reasons, the use of the metro is impractical.

Technological regulation and monitoring of roadbed construction
Lutskiy S.Y., Lychkovskiy A.A., Landsman A.Y.

Background: Long-term deformations of hydraulic structures on weak foundations and swamps lead to the need to develop new construction technologies that increase the bearing capacity of soils. The existing standards for the design of railways and highways are mainly focused on ensuring the safety of the roadbed at the operational stage. Meanwhile, the risks of loss of stability and stability of road sections also arise at the construction stage, especially when powerful heavy construction machinery and equipment are operating.

Aim: Formation of a technical and technological system functioning on the principles of direct and feedback between the characteristics of the constructed roadbed and the parameters of construction equipment to ensure the safety and quality of work.

Methods: Technological regulation of loads and impacts of construction machinery and equipment during the strengthening of the foundation and the construction of embankments of the roadbed.

Results: The composition of the complex technology and the regime of regulation of construction loads have been developed to increase the bearing capacity of weak soils at the base of the roadbed of railways and highways. The features of geotechnical monitoring for the directed improvement of the strength characteristics of soils during the construction period are determined. The expediency of technological regulation of loads and impacts of construction machinery, equipment during the construction of the roadbed is shown.

Conclusion: The complex technology of increasing the load-bearing capacity of the weak foundation of the roadbed consists in the consistent application of regulated modes of intensive impact on each layer of the foundation with the maximum permissible load during geotechnical monitoring.

The correlation between the number of security scanning devices, their capacity and passenger traffic
Filippov A.G., Smirnov S.S., Poliektov D.A., Vasiliev G.L.

Background: There is a situation today where the major passenger buildings are lacking the required passenger traffic capacity. This issue has come about as a result of aligning the requirements of “the Federal Law on Transport Safety” into the buildings’ design. The problem remains relevant and therefore needs to be addressed.

Aim: The paper seeks to examine the correlation between the number of transport safety technical devices for scanning passengers’ bodies and luggage, the device operation time and incoming passenger traffic. This will be done in order to develop recommendations for changing the legislative framework in the field of transport safety and to estimate the advisability of using transport safety technical devices at railway stations, taking into account passenger traffic capacity.

Methods: The study is based on the theory of multi-channel public service system with an unlimited line. The calculations are based on the assumption, that the peak passenger traffic through the passenger devices is stationary.

Results: The paper finds the correlation between the number of transport safety technical devices, their capacity and the length of the line of passengers waiting for passing into the passenger buildings.

Conclusion: The results can be used as a feasibility study of transport safety technical devices, that are installed at the entrance of passenger buildings during their construction, reconstruction or modernization. For the existing buildings the found correlation will help to understand whether it is technically possible to provide the station with the required passenger traffic capacity or it will take capital investments for its reconstruction.

Problems of carsharing integration in urban transport systems of Russian megacities
Volkova E.M.

Background: Transport problems of Russian megacities are mostly consequences of motorization increasing and inefficient transport policy provided by local transport authorities. At the same time, the structure of urban transport markets is changing because of new business models of transport sharing emerging and development. Different models of sharing could be an important part of urban transport systems, but it requires initiative both of transport companies and local transport authorities.

Aim: to assess the state and determine the prospects for the development of the Russian carsharing market as a whole, as well as its largest segment (the carsharing market in Moscow).

Methods: methods of statistical analysis, graphical representation of information, summary, methods of analysis of industry markets (concentration index, Herfindahl –Hirschman index).

Results: In this article barriers for the development of transport sharing in Russian cities are identified, and forms of sharing integration in urban transport cities are developed.

Conclusion: The results obtained can be used by local authorities responsible for public transport services and the development of transport policy in Russian cities, as well as transport organizations engaged in multimodal transportation of passengers in megacities.
