Future NUCARS® Developments
Transportation Technology Center, Inc (TTCI®) continues to develop the NUCARS® software, to support TTCI's on-going research and development for the Association of American Railroads (AAR) and worldwide railroad industry customers. This was recently demonstrated in the release of a comprehensive multi-body track model within NUCARS®, and the computation of wheel/rail contact geometry in real time. Current development efforts are focused on the inclusion of more non-linear suspension elements commonly used in the railway industry, and improving the user interface. The following are a few of the major items that are currently in the works.
