Kinematic analysis of the time taken by trains passing through speed restrictions


Author/s: José Gómez Castaño

This paper conducts an analysis of the kinematics involved during the passage of trains speed restrictions. We develop a general expression for calculating the time for different train types, taking into account the slope of the sections.
A comparison with the Technical Standard ADIF for use in model validation and quantification of the acceleration and deceleration values for the majority of trains as well as for various speeds.

Keywords: Speed restriction, Kinematics.
