Oleo 1D Rail is used for investigating the sensitivity of a whole train CEM system for collision response and was launched in Shanghai, China at this year’s CTRS show. The software has flexible inputs to allow a specific train to be modelled and various collision scenarios simulated. Hydraulic units are then selected from a library of designs and characteristics of linear devices such as rubber, elastomer and deformation tubes. The software reflects the specific geometry accommodating the coupler, buffers and anti-climbers for each vehicle in the rake. Once the basic train and its energy management have been set up, it is possible to run various collision scenarios including train into terminal, train into stationary train, and train into moving train.
Comtec Translations has been instrumental in helping to bring this software to the Chinese market; a country with impressive high speed rail investment. China currently has close to 10,000km of rail investment reportedly in operation and plans in place to expand the network to 50,000km by 2020.
Oleo already has a manufacturing base in China but has maximised its presence in the country with the launch of Oleo 1D Rail. Providing specialist technical translators, Comtec localised the software for the Chinese market. In addition, a Chinese website was set up to host the simulation software. Oleo’s existing sales material, including brochures and leaflets were also translated into Chinese ready for Oleo to launch the software at CTRS in Shanghai.
This considered approach to translation has enabled Oleo to deliver on its strap line: ‘Leading the world in energy absorption’ as the company continues to develop its strong presence in international markets with the launch of this new software.
Sandy Watson, Marketing Manager with Oleo International said: ”Currently there is nothing available on the market as advanced as Oleo 1D Rail for evaluating energy absorption methods with one dimensional simulations. With the support of Comtec we will be able to launch our new software worldwide in different languages at global trade shows and exhibitions. After a successful launch in Shanghai we are now looking forward to bringing Oleo 1D to markets worldwide”
Oleo are an established engineering company and a leading expert in energy absorption technology, designing and manufacturing energy absorption solutions for the rail, elevator and industrial sectors and for end stop solutions. Oleo has been producing hydraulic energy absorption solutions for over sixty years with over 1,000,000 units in circulation.
Ongoing investment in research and development ensures that Oleo is continually updating designs and introducing new products and services to their portfolio.
Oleo 1D Rail simulation software is a valuable tool, used to analyse impacts. Research and development has taken this simulation software to the next level and is able to offer 2D and 3D modelling encompassing linear and non-linear dynamic analysis.
