Abstract

Simulation support for railway infrastructure design and planning processes Antonin Kavicka, Valent Klima Faculty of Management Science and Informatics University of Zilina, Slovak Republic Abstract Nowadays there is paid an essential attention to modernisation and reorganisation of railway companies in the field of freight and passenger traffic with the goal to assure the high level of effectiveness. The railway junctions play very important role within the mentioned process of railway modernisation. There is usually needed to invest into the new technical equipment, to rationalise the work of service resource, to modify railway processes, to react to the changed flows of incoming trains etc. Hence, in order to adopt the essential decisions connected with reengineering of railway junctions it is necessary to study the consequences in advance within the frame of suitable virtual environment. Computer simulation represents an appropriate modelling technique, which
