Description:

To operate a vehicle on the RailCorp network vehicles must comply with the interface requirements set by the Asset Standards Authority. To demonstrate compliance to many of these requirements, a measurement program is needed. EngAnalysis have expertise in undertaking on-track measurement campaigns in the rail industry. A recent example of this was to test the dynamic kinematic outline of a grain wagon.

The wagon is instrumented with an array of displacement transducers to measure the wagon body roll, vertical bounce, and lateral movement during on-track operation. The project scope included:

  • Instrumentation of the wagon and bogie, and set up of data acquisition equipment 
  • Remote monitoring of tests and real-time visualisation of test parameters, including GPS position and speed.
  • Review of test results against operating standards
  • In addition to this, detailed analysis of results can be undertaken to understand correlations between measured variables, for example the geographic dependence of peak events.
