Learning outcomes

After successful completion of the course, students are able to explain the interaction of wheelset and track.

After the introductory examination of the alignment elements, students can enumerate and describe various rail profiles with the appropriate wheel profiles. They will be able to discuss the dimensional accuracy as well as the wear behaviour of both contact partners. Graduates of the course can then compare and evaluate the running stability of the wheelset, the curve travel and the derailment safety.

In addition to the theoretical considerations, students can also present the corresponding calculation methods.

Subject of course
