Principles of Railway Location and Design - 1st EditionSystems engineering is an interdisciplinary field of engineering and engineering management that focuses on how to design and manage complex systems over their life cycles. At its core, systems engineering utilizes systems thinking principles to organize this body of knowledge. The individual outcome of such efforts, an engineered system , can be defined as a combination of components that work in synergy to collectively perform a useful function. Issues such as requirements engineering , reliability, logistics , coordination of different teams, testing and evaluation, maintainability and many other disciplines necessary for successful system design, development, implementation, and ultimate decommission become more difficult when dealing with large or complex projects. Systems engineering deals with work-processes, optimization methods, and risk management tools in such projects. It overlaps technical and human-centered disciplines such as industrial engineering , mechanical engineering , manufacturing engineering , control engineering , software engineering , electrical engineering , cybernetics , organizational studies , civil engineering and project management. Systems engineering ensures that all likely aspects of a project or system are considered, and integrated into a whole.

Table of Contents
Principles of Railway Location and Design examines classification and classing methods of railway networks and expresses theories and methods of railway route selection and design. Railway networks represent modal transfer, which significantly alleviates traffic congestion and pollution The book introduces capacity enhancing methods for existing railways and implementation plans and technical conditions for improving existing passenger railways, building new high speed railways and developing heavy haul railways. The book covers ten areas of unfavorable geological conditions including slide areas, debris flow areas and earthquake areas. Practical solutions with detailed presentations have been provided. This valuable reference book summarizes and extracts the high speed railway route selection design. The book covers basic principles and methods by referring to research data of high speed railway technology in China and other countries, as well as engineering practice data. Scientific researchers, engineering technicians and managerial staff engaged in railway engineering, and graduate students and doctoral candidates majoring in railway engineering and rail transit engineering.
