INVESTIGATING THE OPTIMAL ECONOMIC SPEED FOR RAIL VEHICLES

OPTIMAL-WIRTSCHAFTLICHE GESCHWINDIGKEIT SPURGEBUNDENER FAHRZEUGE

New railway lines for very high speeds are already under construction or planned in five countries of Europe alone. The UIC therefore decided to examine the question of the optimal economic speed. To do this at all, certain assumptions and simplifications had to be made in respect of the many factors and variables, such as the limitation to passenger traffic. Difficulties with regard to cost assessment also arose owing to insufficient experience. The procedures and results described here by the chairman of the working group should therefore not be regarded as universally valid, but rather as a useful first step in the right direction.
