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.
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.
