With the developments in the field of rail transportation, rail transportation dynamics is attracting increased attention. In order to help high-speed trains operate with high speed, high load, low noise, and safety, many researchers have conducted research on system dynamics, dynamic performance, longitudinal dynamics, impact dynamics, structural damage, vibration and noise reduction, and many other fields of high-speed trains. In recent decades, researchers have continuously improved the dynamics of high-speed trains by optimizing train bodies, improving traction motors, strengthening vibration damping systems, and applying new materials, but people still want high-speed trains to be faster, more environmentally friendly, more comfortable, and safer. Therefore, many researchers strive to further improve the dynamics of trains by introducing new materials and new technical means. This Special Issue will discuss recent efforts and research advances achieved in high-speed train dynamics. Topics of interest in this Special Issue include but are not limited to：
- Train system dynamics;
- Train aerodynamics;
- Train impact dynamics;
- Train-rail performance matching;
- Structural damage;
- Pantograph network relations;
- Noise control;
- Structural vibration;
- Train longitudinal dynamics.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Applied Sciences is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2400 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
