Abstract

The WILAC low adhesion creep force model has been integrated into the LABRADOR train braking model to enable an improved simulation of braking in low adhesion conditions. Trial runs were carried out using a class 158 2 car unit. The Inclusion of the WILAC model improves the capability of the LABRADOR model, but some limitations are still to be overcome.
