Abstract

When dealing with the design of a high-speed train, a multiobjective shape optimization problem is formulated, as these vehicles are object of many aerodynamic problems which are known to be in conflict. More mobility involves an increase in both the cruise speed and lightness, and these requirements directly influence the stability and the ride comfort of the passengers when the train is subjected to a side wind. Thus, crosswind stability plays a more relevant role among the aerodynamic objectives to be optimized. An extensive research activity is observed on aerodynamic response in crosswind conditions.
