Virtual prototyping represents an important way for cost and time efficient design of furture railway vehicles. SIMPACK as an universally applicaple simulation software for mechanical and mechatronic systems basing on a multibody system approach and providing the system engineer with powerful bi-directional interfaces to established Computer-Aided-Engineering software serves as a reliable and efficient base for this process. A comprehensive general wheel-rail module extends the software to the entire range of railway vehicles. Besides a short general description including the use of its interfaces, the emphazis is laid upon the contact modelling between wheel and rail for which a recently developed quasi-elastic contact model is applied. Two complex industrial simulation tasks from the field of advanced railway technology demonstrate the concurrent co-operation of all these features.
