Advances in vehicle-track interaction tools
2009 (English)In: Railway Gazette International, ISSN 0373-5346, Vol. 165, no 9, 47-52 p.Article, review/survey (Other academic) Published
In this article, the authors discuss how computer modeling is enabling researchers to improve their understanding of vehicle-track interaction. This in turn allows for more accurate predictions to be made regarding rail damage on plain lines as well as turn-outs. The authors discuss track interaction models, multi-body system modeling, surface roughness models, and train-turnout interactions. The article concludes with the authors noting that numerous parameters related to design and conditions influence dynamic train-turnout interactions.
