Perspectives, Innovations and Developments in Heavy Haul Train Dynamics

Explore the concepts of heavy haul train dynamics, their successes, innovations and future progressions.

Heavy haul railways are one of the great success stories of the railway industry. There is no match for the scale and transportation capability of these systems for overland transport. Their owners continue to push new limits of materials, rollingstock components, track structures and train controls to achieve both optimised and consistent railway operations.

The webinar will present and discuss:

  • Factors that drive the heavy haul success story
  • Characteristics of Heavy Haul Systems
  • A Longitudinal Dynamics Perspective
  • Frontiers for the Future
