Multi-body simulation for providing evidence for safety against derailment for a metre gauge vehicle

Customer: PVF Trade, s.r.o., Czech Republic

End customer: Montreux-Berner Oberland-Bahn (MOB), Switzerland

Project tasks

  • Composition of the modelling parameters
  • Creation of the MBS model for each wagon type
  • Implementation of the boundary conditions in the simulation environment
  • Carrying out and evaluating the simulations
  • Evaluation of the results
  • Documentation in a verification report

Our Approach

The computational verification of safety against derailment in twisted track curves was carried out in accordance with the BAV guideline based on EN14363:2016 using method 1 with test conditions adapted for metre gauge.

Customer benefit

Due to the broad experience of the experts at PROSE with the MBS modelling and simulation of rail vehicles and the performance of computational verifications, the derailment safety verification for the metre gauge vehicles could be carried out efficiently and in target-oriented manner.
