Railway transport has been around since the days of ancient Greece, if you count horse-drawn carts and stone tracks. The modern age of trains most of us are familiar with though began in the 1800s after James Watt’s initial patent for the stationary steam engine expired.
Today railway transport remains one of the most reliable and environmentally friendly means to transport goods and people. In fact, nearly half of the world’s freight cargo is transported by train.
When it comes to developing this form of transportation though, manufacturers face all sorts of requirements for safety, efficiency, and more. Simulation helps to meet these requirements, while at the same time it reduces the need for physical testing and prototype creation, shortens the product development cycle, and decreases costs.
Which brings us to you—the simulation experts! NX CAE helps you address the challenges of railway performance.
