Theme [SST.2011.4.1-3] Development of the Future Rail System to reduce the Occurrences and Impact of Derailment.


Research project
Research project

Funded by the European Commission

(Seventh Framework Programme)

D-RAIL

3 Year Project Commencing October 2011

(Total Budget €4,800,000)


Background
Background

  • European rail freight is of strategic and economic importance

  • Derailments cause major network disruption and societal impact

  • Large number (low cost) - Small number (high cost)

  • ERA initiative to reduce freight train derailments supported by EC

  • Emerging research indicates potential for major step forward


ObjectivesD-RAIL project aims to provide significant improvements in the detection and prevention of derailments and mitigation of their subsequent effects.

  • To provide cost-effective solutions to reduce the occurrences of freight train derailments across Europe by 8 - 12%.

  • To reduce derailment-related costs by 10 – 20% through improved mitigation measures.


Consortium
CONSORTIUM

  • Twenty partners from across Europe with a wide geographical representation

  • Partners include Infrastructure providers, operators, industry and academia

  • Global project which includes International Railways (UIC), Russia (RZD) and USA (Harsco)

  • Many of our partners also have significant International rail experience outside the EU

  • Project is jointly co-ordinated by Newcastle University and UIC
