THE COMPUTER-CONTROLLED GRAVITY SORTING YARD OF THE GERMAN FEDERAL RAILWAY

DIE RECHNERGESTEUERTEN ABLAUFANLAGEN BEI DER DEUTSCHEN BUNDESBAHN

The author first reviews the development of automated shunting and train formation in DB marshalling yards. He then explains and justifies the use of series process computer control. Besides analysing control algorithms for normal operation, he deals with the recording of technical disturbances and operating irregularities, and the correction of their consequences by the automatic operation of the appropriate protective or preventive measures.
