Rail Vehicle Dynamics Simulation-Based Decision Support for Novel Block Brake Material Implementation in Sweden

  • 57 Accesses

Part of the Lecture Notes in Mechanical Engineering book series (LNME)

Abstract

The application of TSI Noise in Sweden needs decision support that can objectively state system-wide benefits and disadvantages, as there are issues with the introduction of novel block brakes: reduced braking performance and increased equivalent conicity. The Roll2Rail Universal Cost Model (UCM) is used to analyse Life Cycle Cost (LCC), as it was also conceived so that it could be used within the decision making processes of infrastructure managers. The simulated characteristics are mainly track Rolling Contact Fatigue (RCF) due to the worsened dynamic train-track interaction.
