The experimental validation of a numerical model for the receptance prediction
Mechanical Engineering Department. Universitat Politécnica de Catalunya. Av. Diagonal 647, 08028 Barcelona, Spain.
The traditional ballasted track with wooden sleepers covers today most railway lines constructions, including the tracks of tram and metro or the industrial railway branching. In this work, we present an experimental methodology to validate a numerical model based on finite element method, the model was previously well defined using the ANSYS Parametric Design Language (APDL) and adapted to represent a classical ballasted track. The obtained result of the analysis is expressed as a frequency response of the track and it is compared to the experimental result from measurements made on the metropolitan classical railway track of Barcelona.
Key words: Numerical model / vibration response / frequency response / experimental result.
