Research Direction

This project focuses on vehicle-track dynamic interaction and how it can be monitored, in particular from vehicle based systems. Phenomena that may vary along the track, for instance ride instability and ride discomfort, are of special interest. A case study with a Regina EMU train has been studied in this context.
