COMPUTER MODELS FOR RAILWAY VEHICLE OPERATION

The paper summarizes the computer programs developed under the Track-Train Dynamics project, designed to study the dynamic interaction of rolling stock and/or train-consist with track. The models describe the vehicle response on tangent and curved track and also discuss the phenomenon of lateral dynamic stability. Results obtained from lateral, vertical and longitudinal train action models, are presented. Analytical results are compared with field data. Possible application, of the computer program for train-handling and train-make up are also discussed.
