PhD topic – Optimizing railway carriage design for improved dispersion, capacity and safety

Research summary

The aim of this research project is to develop a passenger simulation model to optimise the rail carriage design. The development of a computer simulation tool for passenger dispersal will provide the opportunity to test various design solutions and their impacts on the capacity and level of utilisation of train carriages, as well as passenger boarding and alighting time to reduce dwell time.

Expected completion date

December 2021
