The two-axle intermediate waggons of DLR's Next Generation Train (NGT) have single-axle running gears with independently rotating wheels (IRW) and mechatronic track-guidance. This enables centring in the track and active radial steering for IRW pairs during curve passing. The wheel wear and noise generation can thus be considerably reduced. Multibody simulations are used to verify and optimise the dynamic behaviour. Moreover, detailed approaches for simulating high-frequency wheel-rail dynamics are being introduced in the project.
