Abstract

In modern railway industry the simulation of the behaviour of railway vehicles has become an important design method during the last years. Modern simulation packages offer modelling elements that are highly adapted for standard and unusual simulation scenarios. A specific application case is the simulation of a railway vehicle travelling through a switch. It makes high demands on the simulation software due to the inconvenient modelling elements needed: the changing rail profiles on the blade rail and in the crossing vee area as well as the guard rail with its additional contact at the back of the wheel. The article gives an overview over the state of the art in railway vehicle simulation and presents a simulation of a passenger car running through a switch as an application example.
