CZECHOSLOVAK RAILWAY RESEARCH AND ITS CONTRIBUTION TO THE DEVELOPMENT OF THE INTERNATIONAL COLLABORATION OF THE RAILWAYS

The author, Director of the Railway Department's Research Institute in Prague, points out that in Czechoslovakia all modes of transport are organised in accordance with a national plan, in which the Railways occupy a dominant position and carry three-quarters of the total transport demand. He then gives an account of the tasks and content of railway research, i.e. the application of cybernetics, raising of the level and capacity of the Railways, improvement of the viability of rolling stock and installations, protection of the environment and the search for economy measures. In the last part of the article, the author stresses the need for international cooperation in railway research. He quotes various examples, and describes research carried out on the CSD test circuit.
