Railway applications

​UNE acaba de publicar la norma UNE-EN 15654-1:2018 Standard “Railway applications. Measurement of vertical forces on wheels and axles. Part 1: Interoperable railway vehicles in service", the purpose of which is to comply with the European Railway System Interoperability Directive 2008/57/EC when measuring the vertical forces of wheels.

These measurements are taken with the vehicle in operation and their results are used to estimate the static forces, axle loads, load differences and the total weight of the train.

The objective of this standard is to obtain measurements that yield representative values, so that measurement systems complying with this standard may potentially improve safety in the railway sector.
