All parameters necessarily relevant to ensure the high-speed railway infrastructure (HSRI) to be safe have been known in our project. To meet the need of further study about the evolutionary mechanism of service state of HSRI, a HSRI detection database is needed. This paper based on the research achievement of sensors applied in rail infrastructure mainly analyzes entities and attributes in the detection processing and then finishes the design of HSRI detection database conceptual structure. It associates the physical characteristics of high-speed railway detection data to determine the data type and value range of each field in database table, accomplishing the logical and physical structure design of database. This paper uses SQL Server 2008 as database management system (DBMS) and windows as a development environment to develop HSRI detection database.
