Expert opinion on the derailment of a two-way vehicle


Customer: BVB, Basler Verkehrsbetriebe; Switzerland

Customer benefit

  • PROSE considers a combination of dynamic effects as the most probable cause for derailment. The proofs of derailment safety and stability submitted by the manufacturer were checked. The vehicle weight and possibly also the spring stiffness used in the verifications do not correspond to the existing vehicle. The control calculations show that the vehicle meets the requirements in any case.
