Nippon Sharyo Uses AcuSolve Simulation to Make Japan’s Bullet Trains Safer, More Comfortable

If only one bullet train whizzed across a clear landscape, its aerodynamic design would be a relatively uncomplicated matter. But Japan’s bullet trains speed into and out of tunnels on their routes, and they pass other bullet trains in open areas and within tunnels. When a train runs into a tunnel,
the pressure wave traveling in front of the leading car can cause a very loud noise
and vibration, so designers are challenged with trying to make the change in pressure smaller when entering and exiting the tunnel by shaping the nose of the lead engine.
Nippon Sharyo, based in Nagoya, Japan, has been building trains since the late
19th century. Today it is one of Japan’s most prolific manufacturers of railroad cars.
