The proposal of validation metrics for the assessment of the quality of simulations of the dynamic behaviour of railway vehicles

This paper introduces new validation metrics that may be used for the validation of models of railway vehicles. The proposed validation metrics are based on a comparison between the cumulative distribution functions of selected parameters obtained by simulation and measurements. A model of a freight railway vehicle has been developed and the proposed validation metrics were used in model validation. The results of the validation were compared with the results of validation metrics used in the ‘DynoTRAIN’ project. It was shown that the proposed metric is more severe than the metrics used in the project; a result of it comparing the complete domains of the cumulative distribution functions and not only the selected characteristic values.
