Determination of longitudinal dynamic forces, size assessment as well as their distribution in the train body is, and will be a subject of global research. As observed from the beginning of the evolution of the railway vehicle and the train itself, the main reason for the occurrence of longitudinal dynamic forces is represented by the differences in inertial forces between the consecutive train vehicles. These inertial forces are influenced by the braking forces developed on each vehicle. The brake with which a railway vehicle is equipped is the pneumatic brake with compressed air. It evacuates the air from the train’s general pipeline, increasing the pressure in the brake cylinders of each vehicle. The brake command and cylinder filling is more delayed on long trains compared to short ones. Thus, the brake can operate in two ways, the fast-action brake and the slow-action brake. In this paper, we aim to highlight the influence of the brake type by the brake cylinder filling characteristic of the dynamic longitudinal reactions. It will be analysed on a simplified train model the magnitude and distribution of longitudinal dynamic forces obtained using both braking systems.
