Service Solutions for the Rail Industry
Sulzer is recognised worldwide for its experience servicing AC and DC traction motors, braking systems, bogies, gearboxes, generators, and other transportation equipment and parts.
ARTC V/TI Monitor Trial Results and Analysis
A growing method for evaluation of track conditions is to use autonomous measurement systems. This allows for "train path free" measurement, meaning that a standard revenue vehicle is used to obtain the measurement. This is greatly preferred to using a non-revenue vehicle which consumes track time.
Analysis of Instabilities in Railway Vehicles Employing Operational Modal Analysis
The application of Operational Modal Analysis (OMA) in the railway sector opens a broad field of opportunities. The validation of the numerical model employed in the design phase is usually performed employing data obtained in static tests.
Rail Ends for High-Speed Rail Traffic Switches
The development of an all-new concept for forging of rails for high-speed railways involved a lot of cross-disciplinary thinking and re-thinking among Hydraulico's engineers and technicians, spurring several all-new inventions and solutions.
ERTMS and CBTC Side By Side: A Comparison of State-of-the-art Rail Traffic Management Systems
There is a well-defined separation between the systems that are being used in Mass Transit networks and the ones being used for Mainline. However, each of these systems has the necessary maturity to step forward to an integrated solution that comprises the best of both worlds: European Rail Traffic Management System (ERTMS) and Communications-Based Train Control (CBTC) system.
