To prevent freight car derailments caused by train-track dynamics problems, Japanese National Railways has developed a simulation incorporating the complex car and track phenomena. Computer studies have revealed causes and indicated countermeasures. This article describes a hybrid computation, combining digital and analog simulations. The results of simulation and actual tests are compared.
