The aerodynamic loads on a sphere induced by the head pressure pulse of a passing train are calculated using potential flow theory. The results are compared with experimental data which were measured in a moving model rig. The loads were calculated using two different theoretical approaches. They show good agreement with the experimentally obtained results even though in the theoretical model the geometry of the train and the embankment is simplified.
