Today we are introducing new special software: Equivalent Conicity Calculation Program.
Equivalent Conicity is a parameter that is used when investigating dynamic interaction between railways vehicle and track. This parameter describes behavior of contact between wheels and rails for straight and large radius parts of track.
The Program calculates the next parameters:
- Contact points position,
- Rolling radiuses difference depending on displacement of wheel set,
- Contact angles and their difference depending on displacement of wheel set,
- Equivalent Conicity.
Calculations are made in accordance with EN 15302 Standard.
The program can use data from Wheel laser profilometer IKP-5 and Rail laser profilometer PRP or other any sources. The only thing needed is the description of Real Wheels and Rails Profiles presented in tabular form.
This software is developed at the initiative and with support of our Swedish partner.
We shall be happy to get your feedback and suggestions concerning the new product!
