Mechanics

vehicle dynamics modelling

The Mechanics expertise group can help you improve the availability of your assets, extend their life cycle or reduce maintenance costs. Know-how is also available concerning the options for reducing nuisance noise and vibration and improving the safe operability of the tracks.

Areas of expertise:

  • system characterisation (noises, accelerations, vibration), modelling the dynamic behaviour of rail vehicles and infrastructure
  • condition measurement, remaining useful life analysis
  • wheel-rail system optimisation (comfort, safety, costs)
  • noise and vibration
  • asset management
  • combining materials engineering and tribotechnology competencies to establish an overview of all features of a system.
  • assessment of the load of a technical system (forces, accelerations, vibration) via measuring or modelling.
  • wheel rail adhesion
