Marburg, Nov 28th, 2013 – VI-grade, the leading provider of best-in-class products and services to bridge the gap between real world testing and technical simulation, today announced that Universidad Pontificia Comillas ICAI-ICADE, a leading European University located in Madrid, has selected the VI-grade suite of railway related solutions based on VI-Rail as strategic tool for its Railway Systems Master initiative.
The Master course is designed for engineers and science graduates wishing to work in the railway sector, as well as for working professionals from the sector who wish to enhance their training. In order to keep up with the various areas covered, students are advised to devote plenty of time and effort to the modules, if they study the full program: however, class schedules are compatible with a reasonably demanding work schedule.
“We are excited about the technology offered by VI-grade for the railway industry,” says Antonio Fernández, Director of the Masters initiative. “Talgo, one of the main industry partners of our initiative, will contribute with their knowledge in this area, sharing its yearly experience with VI-Rail as simulation tool for their development activities.”
“Railway industry represents a strategic market for Spain,” says Mikel Garbizu, Analysis y Simulacion. “Masters like this one at Comillas ICAI leverage very well trained engineers to the industry. We are looking forward to supporting this important course with our skills and competences in simulation software and services for the railway industry.”
“We are happy to report another very interesting initiative of our company in the railway industry,” says Guido Bairati, Sales Director, VI-grade. “We are looking forward the rich suite of commercial partners of the initiative providing our VI-Rail solution as tool to teach students how to efficiently perform accurate system-level general dynamics analysis for railway systems.”
VI-Rail is the specialized railway simulation software from VI-grade. VI-Rail enables to quickly build a complete, parameterized model of a new railway vehicle, easily define its suspension, wheelset, wheel-rail contact and other vital characteristics. Running through a battery of simulations, it is possible to determine the vehicle’s stability, derailment safety clearance, track load, passenger comfort, and more. The performance of a railway vehicle design can be optimized virtually in the computer, before cutting a single piece of metal or running a single physical test. VI-Rail users can instantly see the effects of design changes on railcar performance in high-speed animation, easily detecting component interferences, excessive wear, instability, and performance limitations. Users can also plot key parameters in graphs to compare results from different designs. For additional information, click here.
