RUN2RAIL (Innovative Running gear solutions for new dependable, sustainable, intelligent and comfortable RAIL vehicles) was a Shift2Rail Open Call project within the Horizon2020 Programme (2017-2019).

RUN2RAIL was a Shift2Rail Open Call project within the Horizon2020 Programme. RUN2Rail explored a number of technical developments for future railway running gear, looking into ways to design trains that are more reliable, lighter, less damaging to the track, more comfortable and less noisy.

The RUN2RAIL project explored various technical developments for future railway running gear, looking into ways to design trains that are more reliable, lighter, less damaging to the track, more comfortable and less noisy.

We led the work stream related to Noise & Vibration. This led to the development of a novel and comprehensive methodology for predicting the transmission of noise and vibration from the running gear to the car body. Models were developed for both airborne and structure-borne transmission and were validated against extensive field measurements carried out at Metro de Madrid.

Other Work Streams were: Innovative sensors & condition monitoring, Optimised materials & manufacturing technologies, Active suspensions & mechatronics.
