Reliable models of passengers, seats and carbody are essential in order predict ride comfort of rail vehicles. This paper extends previously presented models of passenger-carbody interaction to include vertical seating dynamics. The proposed basic model is based on experimental modal analysis of a rail vehicle with and without passengers. The nations of human-body normalized apparent mass and seat transmissibility are fundamental an the modelling. The possibility of using reduced and approximate gels is also discussed in the paper. The proposed models are easy to use and implemented in commercial rail vehicle software.
