TECHNICAL DOCUMENTATION. TRAIN OPERATIONS SIMULATOR
This report represents the technical manual documentation for the Train Operations Simulator (T.O.S.) program. Brief descriptions of the program's subroutines, basic theory, and a sample problem illustrating the program's use are included. The T.O.S. is designed to simulate the performance of a train composed of diesel-electric locomotives and conventional freight cars. Its calculated performance parameters include speed and distance (as a function of time), drawbar forces, and quasi-static L/V ratios.
