    Abstract

    Computer simulation techniques can be used to quantify the effects of changes to railway vehicle and track parameters and the likelihood of derailment. Using this knowledge the precise effects of possible changes to vehicle and track standards can be evaluated. In this paper these tools have been used to analyse the nature of the interaction of vehicles running over twisted track.
