Abstract

An implicit finite volume model was developed for predicting transient pressure along the brake pipe of a freight train. Results from the model are compared to previously published pressures and experimentally measured values. Advantages of the model over previous models are discussed. The model was used to predict pressure profiles resulting from distributed braking and these results are discussed relative to conventional braking using a single locomotive.
