Infrastructure & rolling stock

A global vision of the rail system

Wheel/rail interaction

  • Identification of contact forces.
  • Wear and fatigue of rolling surfaces.

Infrastructure & rolling stock

  • Railway dynamics (stability and derailment).
  • Sizing and optimization, acoustic and vibration comfort.
  • Asset management, service life and mechanical reliability.

Environmental impact

  • Noise and vibration propagation near transmission lines.
  • Transmission in buildings.
