Advances in Vehicle-Track Interaction Tools

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.
