Vehicle behaviour in case of crosswind


Customer: Transtech Oy, Finland
End customer: VR Group (Finnish Railways), Finland

Customer benefit

  • Due to PROSE’s simulations, the customer was able to recognise excessive sensitivity to crosswinds before building a prototype.
  • The customer was able to avoid costly changes to a completed vehicle.

Project tasks

  • Calculation of wind-gust curves in line with EN 14067-6 („Chinese hat“) 
  • Simulation of behavior of vehicle in case of crosswind using ADAMS/VI-Rail software
  • Determination of safe state of vehicle in terms of highest wind speed as a function of wind angle and travel speed
