ABSTRACT

This study presents the area exposed to the risk of earthquakes on KTX routes by examining the magnitude of earthquakes based on spatial statistics analysis. In order to find the clustering pattern, various functions were used such as G, F, K function. As a results, a specific clustering pattern for earthquakes in Korea emerged. As we find that an area in Gyeongbu line of KTX between Ulsan and Busan (52km) is exposed to high risks of earthquakes, improvement of the safety of railroad facilities is required. On the other hand, our research findings indicate that Honam line is exposed to relatively low risks. These results could be informative to determining high-priority areas for structural reinforcement of the facilities to prevent earthquake- related railroad accidents, thus suggesting a need for further analysis on the entire railroad and transportation network.
