The Manchester Benchmarks for Rail Vehicle Simulation

Edited By S. Iwnicki Copyright 1999

    This volume contains the results of the Manchester Benchmarking exercise for railway vehicle dynamics simulation packages. Five of the main computer packages currently used for this purpose were examined in the exercise and the results are presented in the form of tables and graphs.
