Слайд 2: High-speed trains
High-speed trains are trains that go faster than 200 km/H. These trains go on special Railways, which is fenced, whatever man or beast accidentally got in the way at the train. The rails are welded so that instead of short sections with frequent seams, you get one continuous path. This allows the trains to develop greater speed. And to obtain a high speed of such trains has an aerodynamic shape (for example, bullet shape).
The first time was able to accelerate the train to 206 km/h in Germany in 1903, this made the company Siemens. Today the speed record on a train more than 574 kilometers per hour was established on 3 April 2007 the French TGV train. In Russia, the first high-speed train launched in 2009 and it also made the firm Siemens. The speed record
Слайд 6: High-speed trains in Japan
Now high-speed trains are in many countries of the world, but the first public high-speed railway did the Japanese. Laid her in 1964 between the two large cities of Osaka and Tokyo. The characteristic appearance it is called "bullet train" or Shinkasen.
DVT is not the first commercial high-speed train in Japan line Shinkasen were first combined in Tokyo and Osaka on 1 October 1964, that is, 17 years before the first flight of DVT. However, TGV holds the world speed record for conventional trains on electric traction 574 km/h While the average speed during a typical trip to DVT is only 263 km/H. French high speed train TGV
In the early 21st century, the world leader in network of high-speed lines, as well as the exploiter of the first regular high-speed "floating" trains became in China. The Shanghai Maglev is the fastest of the existing trains of this class in the world.It speeds up to 431 km/h! The Shanghai Maglev, China
Слайд 12: High-speed train "Sapsan"
High-speed train "Sapsan" made to Russia by the German company "Siemens". "Sapsan" speeds up to 250 km/h. The name of the train received from the fastest bird in the Falcon family.
Слайд 13: Conclusions
Despite of the fact that the average speed of passenger jets - 1000 km/h and the average speed of high-speed passenger trains 300 km/h if the distance between cities does not exceed 1000 km, then getting faster, easier and convenient high-speed train!
