The paper investigates the role of Digital Twins in the railway industry, with a specific focus on how to make these sophisticated tools widely accessible for practical, everyday applications.
The benefits gained by integrating VampirePro® software, known for its proven pedigree, into the existing DigitalTrainsTM environment are highlighted. Issues such as bogie behaviour, wheel-to-rail interactions, and track irregularities are discussed.
The paper provides case studies, including the creation of virtual railway routes and analysis of train behaviour on curved tracks. The paper emphasises that, when made accessible, Digital Twins can offer invaluable insights into the complex challenges in the railway industry.
