Roll2Rail Final Conference taking place on 17 October in Munich

Stakeholders fromthe EU rail community are welcome to register for the Roll2Rail FinalConference which will take place on the 17th of October in Munich.The event will combine presentations on the main results of the project as wellas interactive sessions with the audience and technical visits in theafternoon.

Click HERE to download the draftagenda and the information on the different technical visits offered to theparticipants. Due to limited places inthe technical visits, participants may be asked to join another one ifplaces are no longer available.

Participation is free of charge and participants are requested toregister HERE before15th September 2017. Due tolimited capacity, please be aware that your registration request does notrepresent a confirmed registration because the attendance will bebalanced between project partners and external stakeholders. You will receive aresponse in your inbox by 19 September.

Highlights of theevent:

- Research in the area of Tractioncomponents and subsystems, including SiC technologies
- Radio communications technologyassessment for railways
- Technical framework and recommendations fornew composite/multi-material car bodyshell
- Universal Cost Model for innovativeRunning Gears
- Homologation processes for brake systemin Europe
- Research for Comfortable and AttractiveTrain Interiors
- Methodology to separate rail and vehiclenoise for more cost/effective homologation & noise control ROI
- Energy calculation methodology, boundaryconditions & link with Shift2Rail targets
- Railway system level impact assessment

Laying the foundations for a quieter railway

Roll2Rail1, a large collaborative railway research project has begun its investigation into addressing future noisechallenges outlined in the Shift2Rail2 Master Plan. The work will focus on developing rolling noise separationtechniques that will help explain, describe and control the different physical mechanisms that contribute to rollingnoise during the pass-by of a train. The findings will help progress towards a quieter railway and will contributeto future vehicle and track designs that minimise noise emissions. Adam Mirza, the Noise Work Package Leaderwithin Roll2Rail, and Eulalia Peris, the Project Coordinator, explain further.
