Rail

Description:

How do you identify vulnrbilties more efficiently?

Computer-Aided Engineering (CAE) – Fast and Efficient Product Development Through Calculation and Simulation.
Simulation is a driver of innovation. Virtual prototype tests can be used to investigate design alternatives and to identify weak points at an early stage. The product development process thus becomes faster and more efficient, while the product design is optimized.

Our rail service portfolio

Driving simulation:

Simulation for determining the driving characteristics of railway vehicles according to DIN EN 14363:

- Simulation of track tests
- Assessment of the dynamic driving behavior
- Safety measures against derailment
