This title incorporates the 15th proceedings of the very successful International Conference on Railway Engineering Design and Operation (COMPRAIL) series, which began in Frankfurt in 1987.
The papers presented at this conference aim to update the use of advanced systems, promoting their general awareness throughout the management, design, manufacture and operation of railways and other emerging passenger, freight and transit systems. With the conference attracting a variety of specialists including railway engineers, designers of advanced train control systems and computer specialists, the book particularly emphasises the use of computer systems in advanced railway engineering.
Topics include, but are not restricted to: Advanced Train Control, Operations Quality; Planning and Policy; Energy Supply and Consumption; Operational Planning; Computer Simulations Infrastructure; Monitoring and Maintenance; Railway Vehicle Dynamics; Safety and Security; Signalling systems.
