Day 2: Rail Vehicle Dynamics

Day 2 concentrates on Rail Vehicle Dynamics and Flexible Bodies. We will show you how any type of rail-based vehicle or mechanism can be simulated not only from our experts, but as well our customers such as Virtual Vehicle Research, DB Systemtechnik, Chalmers University of Technology, China Academy of Railway Sciences, FEMTO-ST Institute, and many more. On top of that, we will provide you with an overview of the latest developments in the Simpack Rail and Flexible Bodies applications.
