Railway Maintenance & Dynamics

Industrial Sector Training

Duration: 2 days (14 hours)
Price: 1 800€

Maintenance is a key element of any rail operation (TGV, freight, streetcar, metro). This training course enables you to understand wheel/rail contact and the dynamics of the track/rolling stock system. As a result, it becomes possible to set up conditional and predictive maintenance plans to optimize operating costs.

Participant Profile

Engineers & technicians involved in the maintenance, operation & management of rail networks or rolling stock fleets


• Basic knowledge of vibration & acoustics
• Associates degree or equivalent


On request

No more than 12 people per session

Evaluation – Award

• Questionnaire in the form of a quiz

• Certificate of achievement


  • Present a synthetic view of the physical phenomena of wheel-rail contact related to maintenance & operation
  • Understand the appearance & evolution of wheel and rail defects (wear, fatigue, squat, strain, corrugation)
  • Present issues related to main lines (TGV, freight) and urban applications (metro, tramway)



  • Defect classification, qualification & quantification
  • Material resistance
  • Solicitations: contact force
  • Tools for operating control

Rolling stock:

  • Railway dynamics & safety
  • Mechanical behavior during operation
  • Residual life assessment
