Algorithm Design and Simulation of the Urban Rail Turn-Back Capacity Based on CBTC


In order to analyze the turn-back capacity of urban rail transit based on CBTC more accurately, firstly, this paper analyzes the turn-back process and characteristics, and the factors that influence the turn-back interval time. Secondly, it respectively analyzes various influence factors and designs algorithm. Then, it designs algorithm and developed computer simulation system (TBSim) for calculating the turn-back capacity based on CBTC and the traction calculation. Finally, it proves the correctness and practicability of the algorithm and the simulation system by an example.
