The performance of railway track under dynamic loading is extremely complex due to the interdependent and sometimes non-linear behaviours of track components. Many and varied computer models of train-track dynamics have been developed around the world to try and analyse these behaviours. To compare, test and validate the capabilities and outputs of six available computer models, an evaluation exercise was undertaken to benchmark the participating models against each other and against measured field data collected at a track test site in Victoria, Australia. The outcomes of this paper will assist railway engineers in selecting an appropriate model for their requirements.

Search Google Scholar™

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
