AeroEfficient Optimized Train Shaping
AeroEfficient helps optimize the aerodynamic performance of rail vehicles using state-of-the-art computer-aided engineering (CAE) tools.Reducing aerodynamic drag saves up to 8 per cent of energy in regional trains and 15 per cent in high speed trains. Limiting drag and maximizing stability also increase acceleration, which reduces traveling time.
Minimized Drag, Enhanced Aerodynamics
This comprehensive and innovative optimization process helps you develop and build new products by calculating the best way to reduce drag.
AeroEfficient Optimized Train Shaping is based on genetic algorithms that use:
- Parameterized, three-dimensional models
- Detailed simulation of aerodynamic drag
- Decisive optimization software
AeroEfficient technology takes into account constraints such as crash structure, industrial design and ergonomic limits of the cab. It then offers a choice of the best possible solutions to optimize the vehicle’s aerodynamic performance.
