DEVELOPMENT AND PERFORMANCE OF A SIMULATION PROGRAMME FOR A RAPID TRANSIT RAILWAY

AUFBAU UND LEISTUNGSFAEHIGKEIT EINES S-BAHN-SIMULATIONSPROGRAMMS

The authors describe a simulation programme developed with the aid of funds from the Federal Ministry of Transport and supported by the DB. The programme facilitates decision-making in respect of system-effective vehicles design, train operation, signal implementation and route layout. It can be applied with equal effectiveness to rapid transit systems, underground railways and tramway systems. Although it does not provide direct optimal solutions, it nevertheless allows--by means of repeated calculation sequences--the effect of specific measures to be examined likewise the quantitative relationships of the various system variables from which the optimal result for operator and user can be determined.
