  author={M. Bruner and Luca Rizzetto},
  journal={WIT Transactions on the Built Environment},
This paper on tram-train vehicles on railway track is from the proceedings of 14th international Conference on Urban Transport and the Environment in the 21st Century, which was held in Malta in 2008. The authors describe how “tram–train” systems carry out the integration of an urban tramway with the surrounding railway network, by means of light rail vehicles often provided with special wheel profiles in order to fit both grooved and flat-bottomed rails. The authors report on a study that… Expand

A significant part of maintenance costs in urban rail systems (metro, tram, light rapid transit/light metro) is due to wheel-rail wear. Wear rates; measured for example as depth of wear per kilometreExpand
Dynamic Simulation Method of High-Speed Railway Engineering Construction Processes Based on Virtual Geographic Environment
A dynamic simulation method for constructions processes based on a virtual geographic environment can facilitate the identification of conflicts in the construction scheme through accurately expressing and analysing the intricate spatio-temporal relations among railway facility components, construction equipment and the surrounding environment.

Mechanical characteristics of modern tramcar–embedded track system due to differential subgrade settlement
Abstract Construction of modern tram system in China is still at an early stage of development. Stipulating appropriate standards for the allowable amount of differential subgrade settlement insteadExpand
A procedural modelling method for virtual high-speed railway scenes based on model combination and spatial semantic constraint
Experimental results show that the method proposed in this article is suitable for the automatic generation of virtual high-speed railway scenes by combining sophisticated basic-element models in a seamless manner. Expand
