Statistical inverse problems for non-Gaussian vector valued random fields with a set of experimental realizations

Abstract : The railway track irregularities, which is a four dimensions vector-valued random field, are the main source of excitation of the train. At first, using a revisited Karhunen-Loève expansion, the considered random field is approximated by its truncated projection on a particularly well adapted orthogonal basis. Then, the distribution of the random vector that gathers the projection coefficients of the random field on this spatial basis is characterized using a polynomial chaos expansion. The dimension of this random vector being very high (around five hundred), advanced identification techniques are introduced to allow performing relevant convergence analysis and identification. Based on the stochastic modeling of the non- Gaussian non-stationary vector-valued track geometry random field, realistic track geometries, which are representative of the experimental measurements and representative of the whole railway network, can be generated. These tracks can then be introduced as an input of any railway software to characterize the stochastic behavior of any normalized train.
