    Developing larger loading gauges for Europe2013Report (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The needs and opportunities for larger loading gauges in Europe are investigated for railway wagonload as well as intermodal transportation. Dimensional constraints on both railways and highways are investigated, and a set of large railway loading gauges are proposed, which are already implemented on select mainlines in northern Europe. These large gauges are compared with the most prevalent gauges presently in use, and the increased capacity is quantified for general commodities and specific load units. Recommendations are made for existing freight corridors as well as for upgraded and new railway lines.

    Developments in railway freight transportation between Scandinavia and Germany2010In: Proceedings of the 6th SoNorA University Think Tank Conference, 2010Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper investigates recent and ongoing developments in freight transportation by railbetween Scandinavia and Germany. Present capacity constraints are identified. Infrastructureinvestment plans until about 2020 are reviewed. Technical standards between the national railwaynetworks are compared and common best practices are proposed. Among the conclusions arerecommendations to unify the operation of long freight trains, to raise axle loads and to adoptenlarged, flat-top loading gauges.

    Entwicklung größerer Lademaße für Europa2014In: Eisenbahntechnische Rundschau, ISSN 0013-2845, Vol. 63, no 7+8Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [de]

    Größere Lademaße für Güterwagen und für den Kombinierten Verkehr bringen eine deutliche Effizienzsteigerung im Güterverkehr der Bahnen. Das ist notwendig, wenn die von der EU ins Auge gefasste Verlagerung großer Transportmengen auf die Schiene angesichts des Wettbewerbs mit dem modernen Straßengüterverkehr wirtschaftlich erfolgreich sein soll. In Nordeuropa sind Großraumprofile schon im alltäglichen Bahnverkehr zu finden. Wie man diese Lademaße in den Eisenbahnnetzen Mitteleuropas umsetzen könnte, wird im Folgenden dargelegt.

    Incremental Capacity Expansion: Heavier Loads, Faster Empties and Quicker Meets2011Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

     To meet growing demand, a study is being done on measures to raise transportation capacity, including increased tonnage per loaded train using the existing locomotives, higher return speed for empty trains, and quicker meets.  Results show that for a trailing tonnage increase of some 19 %, the longer loading, transit and unloading times would be more than recovered by raising the empty return speed by some 10 km/h.  Simultaneous entry to meets will further raise capacity and reduce cycle time

    Øresund and Fehmarnbelt high-capacity rail corridor standards2013Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The Øresund and the planned Fehmarnbelt fixed links have recently adopted a set of standards thatcan significantly raise the operating efficiency and capacity of freight by rail  These standards are explained in the context of the German-Scandinavian railway corridor and in comparison to the European Technical Specifications for Interoperability  Using a quantitative model, the mass and volume loading capacity per train are calculated  Compared to present limitations in the German-Scandinavian corridor, the mass loading capacity per train can be increased by 60%, and the volume loading capacity by up to 214%.

    General model of railway transportation capacity2012In: Computers in Railways XIII: Computer System Design and Operation in the Railway and Other Transit Systems, 2012, p. 335-347Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    A general model of railway transportation capacity has been developed, which models mass transportation capacity and volume transportation capacity per unit time. It can also be adapted to passenger transportation. The model is easy to use and can handle trade-offs between conflicting effects. It is a suitable tool in capacity planning for preliminary assessment of the capacity effects of candidate investment and operating scenarios, and can point to areas where detailed analysis with other methods should be applied. Application of the capacity model to cases of higher axle loads and higher speeds in freight transportation showed significant and mixed capacity effects that would not have been obvious otherwise.

    Øresund and Fehmarnbelt high-capacity rail corridor standards updated2014In: Journal of Rail Transport Planning & Management, ISSN 2210-9706, E-ISSN 2210-9714, Vol. 4, no 3, p. 44-58Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The Øresund and the planned Fehmarnbelt fixed links have recently adopted a set of standards that can significantly raise the operating efficiency and capacity of freight by rail. These standards are explained in the context of the German-Scandinavian railway corridor and in comparison to the European Technical Specifications for Interoperability. Using a quantitative model, the mass and volume load capacity per train are calculated. Compared to present constraining limitations in the German-Scandinavian corridor, the mass load capacity per train can be increased by 64%, and the volume load capacity by up to 220%.

    Railway line capacity utilisation and its impact on maintenance costs2019In: Journal of Rail Transport Planning & Management, ISSN 2210-9706, E-ISSN 2210-9714, Vol. 9, p. 22-33Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In this paper, we analyse how railway maintenance costs are affected by different levels of railway line capacity utilisation. Previous studies have focused on the wear and tear of the infrastructure, while this paper shows that it is important to also acknowledge the heterogeneity of the maintenance production environment. Specifically, we estimate marginal maintenance costs for traffic using econometric methods on a panel dataset from Sweden and show that these costs increase with line capacity utilisation. The results are significant considering that current EU regulation (2015/909) states that track access charges can be based on marginal costs, with the aim of achieving an efficient use of available infrastructure capacity.

    VEL Wagon: State of the art and concept drafting2011Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The present deliverable presents a general overview of the European rail freight system in terms of:

    Demand:

    Where the general characteristics and trends on freight transportation market are analysed, obtaining among other conclusions that more transport of processed high-valued goods with low density and higher space requirement is happening in contrast to transport of bulk cargo and heavy goods.

    Supply

    Where the freight railway system and its performance are analysed, being intermodal transportation and unit trains the business segments with major interest. The current wagon fleet characteristics together with their performance are discussed to produce guidelines for VEL-Wagon concepts, among which the multipurpose applications. 

    Infrastructure

    General overview of railway infrastructure characteristics paying especial attention to loading gauges and axle loads.

    Finally it presents rough concept definitions of VEL-Wagon based on partners evaluation.
