Running behaviour of rail vehicles

Curving behaviour with regard to tracking geometry, wheel-rail forces, wheel and rail wear and safety against wheel climb derailment for:

  • Stiff framed locomotives, also with special guiding systems such as Beugniot levers, Krauss Helmholtz bogies etc.
  • Four wheeled vehicles, also with long wheel base and in tight curves
  • Bogies with radial wheelsets, also under the action of traction and braking forces
  • Behaviour of vehicles in trains, especially at push-and-pull operation
