About this event

Presenter: Dr Paul Allen, Assistant Director, Institute of Railway Re-search, University of Huddersfield


The fundamental principles of railway vehicle dynamics dictate that for a conventional railway wheelset, there is a compromise between maintaining vehicle lateral stability and achieving adequate steering performance. This presents a challenge to the vehicle designer, particularly on systems with a combination of higher speed straight track sections and smaller radius curves. The research presents a metro system based case study, whereby novel mechanical and mechatronic solutions were simulated and used to optimise the behav-iour of a new generation of vehicles. The work utilised wheel-rail damage and cost modelling tools to demonstrate significant potential benefits to the operator. The presentation is aimed at a wide audience of engineering disciplines and will explain the fundamentals of railway vehicle behaviour. It will demonstrate how modern co-simulation techniques can embed control engineering techniques into railway vehicle dynamics.
