Track Geometry and Cost-Efficiency - or - How Good must the Track be?

Project: Research area

Project Details


The dynamical behaviour of railway vehicles is determined by the track irregularities. How good must the track be for causing a sufficient behaviour of vehicles and lowest costs in maintenance? The quality loss is an exponentially accelerated process. Therefore maintenance work should not be done too early and in the best possible quality so as to achieve long capital repair cycles.
