When performing the technical tests of the brake system under laboratory conditions, it is necessary to create the same conditions as those in operation. The friction coefficient is dependent on a number of parameters, including airflow during ride and weather conditions. Therefore, during the take-over tests, both these conditions are obligatory to simulate. This paper describes the design of the chamber, which will allow the test stand RAILBCOT to carry out the so-called dry and wet tests with airflow as during real-life ride. It also isolates the acoustic emission and emission of braking material to the surrounding area when tested.
