Key design principles affecting the performance of railway systems
Why attend this programme?
This workshop will equip delegates with a basic understanding of the role of traction and rolling stock within the context of railway systems as a whole.
Delegates will be introduced to vehicle subsystems and components and will analyse how the vehicles design impacts its performance and safety requirements.
After attending this course you will be able to:
Who should attend:
- Recognise types of traction and rolling stock and common variants
- State the main subcomponents for each type
- Explain the functional, interface and safety requirements
- Recognise and identify common vehicle related hazards
