Stability and Well-posedness of a Nonlinear Railway Track Model
MetadataShow full item record
Railway tracks rest on a foundation known for exhibiting nonlinear viscoelastic behavior. Railway track deflections are modeled by a semilinear partial differential equation. This paper studies the stability of solutions to this equation in presence of an input. With the aid of a suitable Lyapunov function, existence and exponential stability of classical solutions is established for certain inputs. The Lyapunov function is further used to find an a-priori estimate of the solutions, and also to study the input-to-state stability (ISS) of mild solutions.
