When modelling the dynamics of a rail vehicle ride, one of the important input parameters is the profile geometry of the wheel and rail treads. Commonly available simulation programs have databases containing some standardized profiles, or allow the profile to be added to the database. However, complications arise when a specific profile is required in the simulation analysis. Its geometry must be entered in the form of coordinates of the knot points that can be used to render the curve and thus define the desired profile. Simulation programs, however, do not have the ability to efficiently generate these coordinates. Since this is a lengthy process, the author team has created a program to define this profiles, based on their common drawing documentation. This program allows to create even large amount of profiles needed for variable rail treads definitions of crossings and switch points by a smart way.
Key words: composite rail profiles / specific track section / tramcar ride analysis
