Computer models to predict how railcars will respond to different track conditions are being developed by Indonesian and Australian researchers, to improve rail safety and efficiency in both countries. They’ve already created a successful model for passenger carriages, which has been validated against the performance of trains in Indonesia. Now the researchers are working on […]
Developing an instrument rail vehicle in Surabaya as a test-case to identify infrastructure related critical issues.
From 2016 a specially-equipped standard railcar will be rocking and rolling along the tracks of East Java. It will have carefully positioned sensors to detect its movement during normal operation, including its displacement and vibration. The railcar instrumentation has been designed by Monash University’s Institute of Rail Technology (IRT) to provide data on the condition […]
