Project

Railway applications - Railway rolling stock - Investigation of vehicles position on the reverse curve tracks during running and calculation of buffer overlap

Abstract

The purpose of this report is investigation and evaluation of lateral displacement and buffer overlap between two specified vehicles of different train sets for defined running cases in curves.For this purpose, the types of vehicles defining the train sets and different service conditions are specified. Position of the vehicles on the track at the moment of maximum lateral displacement (minimum buffer overlap) is recorded.The worst cases of lateral displacement and buffer overlap between two vehicles as well as relation to equations in EN 15551:2009 are analysed.
