Abstract
A measurement investigation, at ADIF's test site at the O Eixo viaduct which is on the Spanish Santiago-Ourense high speed railway line, has been carried out during the last year. The main goal of the investigation is to study the effect of the cross-wind on railway overheads (catenaries) and the influence of the presence of windbreaks on the wind-induced motion of the railway overhead. A description of the O Eixo viaduct test site is presented in this paper, including the installed windbreaks, the sensor and power supply systems. Three catenary spans has been instrumented at the center point of the catenary span contact wire with one ultrasonic anemometer and two unidirectional accelerometers. Additionally, another ultrasonic anemometer placed in the central catenary span has been installed to provide reference wind data.
