Technical Report


In this Technical Report, environmental conditions are related to climate and big animals. Separately and in combination environmental conditions can represent considerable challenges to the railway sector as availability, economy, reputation and safety can be severely affected. Both severe summer and winter conditions occur, and more intense weather is predicted for the future. The intention of this Technical Report is to help reduce technical risks related to environmental conditions. All tests of the different clauses in this Technical Report can be performed either in a climate chamber or on track, if the corresponding test conditions are given.
