    Why is China’s high speed rail the best in the world It all depends on these five devices

    April 5, 2020


    According to the latest statistics, by the end of 2018. China has 29,000 kilometers of high-speed railways The length of the railway is 130,000 kilometers, both ranking first in the world In just a decade, China’s high-speed rail mileage has soared by 20,000 kilometers On average, 2,000 kilometers of paving is done every year So why is China building high-speed rail so fast? Except for our diligent and intelligent construction staff Also cannot leave these five great powers heavy weapons The so-called mountain road, water bridge China is a vast country with complex terrain In the encounter of mountains and valleys and other special travel The bridge machine came in handy The traditional bridge erecting machine is composed of many parts Carry out bridge transportation, lifting and assembling, etc The high-speed rail bridge erecting machine can do all the work at once Set girder, transport beam, frame beam in one Complete the piecewise assembly of the bridge at one time Take the slj900/32 mobile bridge erecting machine independently developed in China as an example The bridge erection machine weighs 580 tons It is 91.8 meters long, 7.4 meters wide, and 9 meters high It can lift beams of 450-900 tons at one time A 500-meter bridge The mobile high-speed railway bridge erecting machine can be built in only 7 days And put in manpower age to need at least half year above You have seen ten wheels of wagons, and twenty wheels of wagons Have you ever seen a flat car with 1,152 wheels? It is SMPT, a flat car developed by China It is a very large machinery and equipment in the transportation field The pallet truck traction section has 8 engines and is operated by an electronic computer The conveyer allows the wheels to turn 360 degrees at will It is understood that each wheel of the flat car can carry over 30 tons of weight The vehicle can carry over 50,000 tons, and can be freely combined according to the size of the transport object The beam body will be used in the transport process of this flatcar Generally, it is composed of 20 to 30 wheels, except for the transportation of high-speed rail girders It is also widely used in aircraft, submarines, large irregular structures Petroleum, chemical industry, and much other mechanical equipment The SMPT is also known as the transport giant After the bridge and roadbed get through, the rail-laying car is used Track-track fully automatic rolling car widely used in railway construction You can lay sleepers and rails as you go Then by hand to hit a fixed bolt, a track laid However, the traditional rail-laying vehicles in the special environment are more clumsy To this end, our country specially developed a kind of wheeled rail laying car for the tunnel When laying tracks Four sets of wheels can be folded at a 0-45-degree Angle The efficiency of the fully automatic rolling car is more than twice that of the traditional rolling car Building high-speed trains require digging holes in mountains, so shield machines are needed Compared to digging by hand The shield tunneling machine has high automation Save manpower, construction speed, a hole into the advantages Especially for this special landform in our country, it is a tool for digging holes Take China’s Xicheng high-speed railway through the Qin-Ling mountain tunnel as an example Two large horsepower shield machines fully open No matter what the geological environment, the shield machine can cut through it Shield machines came into being over 200 years ago It originated in England and flourished in Japan and Germany Before our shield machine is imported At that time, the import price was as high as 300 million yuan After years of hard work by engineers Now domestic shield machine is not only exported to foreign countries The price is only 200 million yuan From the blockade to the breakthrough, China took 15 years At present, the domestic shield machine has formed four series More than 30 specifications of products, the cumulative development of shield products over 400 Do you still remember the news of foreigners using COINS to test the stability of China’s high-speed railway? Yeah, it’s all seamless rail Seamless rail is not completely seamless, but by several super-long rail composition The longest one can reach 500 meters, taking the shanghai-Nanjing high-speed railway as an example The entire length of 303 km of high-speed railway USES seamless rail technology When the 500-meter rail is pulled to the construction site, connect the rails one by one Welded together by extrusion, the result is hundreds of kilometers of seamless track The flatness error of rail connection within 1.5m shall not exceed 0.2mm Using a seamless rail welding machine makes the construction speed double Besides, compared with ordinary rails, seamless rails eliminate numerous rail joints Thus, the impact force of the joint is eliminated and it greatly reduces the damage of the line is greatly Save a lot of raw materials 30-75 percent can save the whole railway maintenance cost And most importantly The seamless rails make the train no longer rattle and provide excellent stability It is with these heavy weapons of the state Only then has China high-speed railway mileage had the blowout type development? Besides people and transportation, it also makes the logistics capital flow run substantially Finally, a seamless connection is achieved In the future, more high-speed railways will be built in China We will provide strong support for China’s development

    The Real Reason America Doesn’t Have High-Speed Rail

    The Real Reason America Doesn’t Have High-Speed Rail

    February 15, 2020


    Like it or not, the United States has a big
    transportation problem. According to many, a high-speed rail network
    could help alleviate a lot of the country’s transportation issues, but high-speed rail
    in the USA hasn’t made much progress in the last 50 years. Here’s why. In the United States, everybody likes the
    idea of trains… but American trains are slow, clumsy, and absurdly expensive. Nobody wants to creep down the coast in an
    Amtrak – and to be honest, can you blame them? Meanwhile, a number of other countries across
    the world run trains that whiz along so fast and so smoothly that, according to Vox, the
    average person actually prefers them to airplanes. That’s because airports have to be situated
    a taxi ride away from big cities, and force you to endure unbearable security procedures. Train stations, however, can be planted right
    in the city center – meaning that, if you want to travel a mid-range distance, a bullet
    train will get you there faster, cheaper, and more comfortably. No, they’re never going to lay tracks across
    the Atlantic, where planes have a significant advantage. But for shorter distances, high-speed rail
    closes the gap. Bullet trains are also dramatically more energy-efficient
    than planes and automobiles. The International Energy Agency reports that,
    even though the rail sector carries 8% of the world’s passengers and 7% of global freight
    transport, it only represents 2% of the Earth’s transport energy demand. Even better, three quarters of passenger rail
    activity takes place on electric trains, making the rail industry the only form of transportation
    that is widely electrified today. Lots of big companies will tell you that Americans
    don’t really care about high-speed rail, a problem many blame on the country’s automobile
    culture. However, surveys from the American Public
    Transportation Association tell a different story. A 2015 study found that if bullet trains were
    available, nearly two-thirds of surveyed Americans would be happy to use them – and when people
    were informed of the cost and time-saving benefits of high-speed rail, that number even
    increased a few points. Millennials want it even more, as at least
    71 percent of the 18-44 crowd said they would like to ride bullet trains. Furthermore, high-speed rail enjoys broad
    bipartisan support, and three quarters of survey participants supported making it easier
    for real estate developers to place amenities near high-speed rail stations. So yes, average Americans do want high-speed
    rail, and on both sides of the aisle, too. It’s popular. It’s proven. So why not? Now, it’s worth pointing out that America
    has actually been working on high-speed rail for over 50 years. Renewed efforts make headlines every once
    in a while, but these projects tend to stagnate pretty quickly. To be fair, when Japan first introduced bullet
    trains to the world, the U.S. tried to hop on board from the get-go. All the way back in 1965, President Lyndon
    B. Johnson signed the High-Speed Ground Transportation Act. While construction began immediately, the
    project ran into frequent mechanical problems, and its funding had been severely depleted
    by 1975. All in all, it wasn’t quite the grand achievement
    everyone hoped for. And while the push for a proper high-speed
    rail has become more prevalent in the 21st century, and things do seem to be amping up,
    it’s not really clear that anything will be much different this time around. A major advantage of developing high-speed
    rail in America is the fact that it already exists elsewhere. Sadly, as with basically everything else in
    the U.S. today, the biggest obstacle in the way of progress is politics. Speeding up the Acela Express, for example,
    would require billions in federal funding, which isn’t exactly going to be forthcoming
    in today’s heavily polarized political climate. And then there’s California. The political squabbles that have dashed the
    state’s bullet train ambitions are now legendary. While the concept of connecting the Golden
    State’s biggest cities via bullet train seems great on paper, the planning process has been
    fraught by rushed construction and bad financial decisions. “The bottom line is we’re really bad at
    just building things cheaply and quickly in the US in general.” The political battles got even nastier in
    2019, when the Trump administration pulled $929 million in federal grants for California’s
    high-speed rail. The big problem here is that none of these
    pitfalls have anything to do with high-speed rail itself. Bullet trains are a proven, established technology
    that reaps huge benefits across multiple sectors. But ground-level mistakes and political pettiness
    have turned a potentially great technology into a total mess. But that’s not the end of America’s bullet
    train woes. A major contributor to the downfall of high-speed
    rail in the U.S. are the gargantuan industries who lobby against their development through
    coordinated propaganda efforts – and sometimes blatant lies. Many of the attacks against high-speed rail
    have come from the Reason Foundation, a self-proclaimed “libertarian think tank” which regularly bashes
    efforts to build bullet trains. According to SF Gate, this enterprise is funded
    by the Koch brothers, ExxonMobil, Chevron, Shell Oil, the American Petroleum Institute,
    and Delta Airlines, among others. These corporations recognize that, whenever
    Americans are given the opportunity to use high-speed rail, major airlines and oil companies
    will be the ones to suffer. Whenever a high-speed rail project gains momentum
    in America, big oil pours billions of dollars into lobbyists, propaganda, paid politicians,
    and, of course, the Reason Foundation. “Maniacal laugh! Maniacal laugh! Maniacal laugh!” That’s the main reason the U.S. has no high-speed
    rail network – and this problem won’t go away easily. Unfortunately, the lobbying issue isn’t going
    to vanish overnight, and successfully implementing a high-speed rail network across the entire
    United States is going to take years — if not decades, depending on how future power
    struggles turn out. Despite these obstacles, however, there are
    multiple high-speed rail efforts pushing ahead. For instance, Virgin Trains USA hopes to make
    their electric train from Las Vegas to Los Angeles operational as soon as 2022. A similar project is underway in Texas, where
    they’re working on a Houston-to-Dallas line that could even hit Japanese bullet train
    speeds – as well as a Florida line from Miami to Tampa. The infamous California train seems to face
    new struggles everyday, but there is hope that they might someday pull it together. After languishing on the back burner for decades,
    the past decade has seen newfound fervor for high-speed rail projects, particularly since
    investing in electric bullet trains is a key element in the Green New Deal. So don’t rule out high-speed rail in the U.S.
    just yet. There’s still a long way to go, but the future
    might get here some day. Check out one of our newest videos right here! Plus, even more Grunge videos about your favorite
