The contact model; written in Modelica; has been validated against measurement for different conditions of contact (dry; wet…). The model is fully parametric and allows testing of various adherences.
Finally; the resulting system composed of pneumatic valves; wheel-rail interface and rolling-stock is exported through c-code for integration into a HIL system; providing an efficient test platform for the electronic Brake Control Unit.
