Accident investigation

Sydac's simulators have been used in the investigation of rail accidents, where the models are fine tuned to the train involved and an accurate track vision is produced.

Due to the high level of physics based modelling of the train system, Sydac models are particularly accurate in the dynamic calculation of train performance including acceleration, braking and in train forces and behaviours.

Our suite of models includes a full range of train systems and subsystems as well as variable environmental models such as wheel-rail friction.

Sydac simulators are not only able to calculate gross train performance but also to provide the level of detail necessary to understand in-train behaviours such as buff and draft forces at couplers as well as individual braking component performance and interactions.

We can accurately recreate the situation and test theories on the simulator as to the cause of the accident.

We are looking forward to hearing from you.
