The DynoTRAIN project aims to promote interoperable rail traffic in Europe by reducing costs of certification and closing “open points” in the TSI’s. On the basis of the requirements for the new CR TSI and revision of HS TSI, opportunities to reduce certification costs and where it is seen that virtual certification could be introduced it is decided to focus the study on the main aspects of rolling stock dynamics that are or need to be subject to certification. Hence the Work Program of the project is organised around 6 technical Work Packages:

WP 1: Measurements of track geometry quality and virtual homologation;
WP 2: Track geometry quality;
WP 3: Contact geometry;
WP 4: Track loading limits related to network access;
WP 5: Model building and validation;
WP 6: Virtual certification of modified vehicles and vehicles running in other conditions.

WP 7:  Is a quality assurance work package - transverse to the other ones - that aims at ensuring the acceptance of the results of the project by European and National Safety Authorities. In this WP methodologies will be defined to be applied to all the technical WP in order to check and guaranty the quality of the results and propositions and in particular to prove that the project will not jeopardize the safety levels of the railway systems.

This specific WP will also deal with dissemination activities (WP7 Task 4.2), especially towards the European Railways Agency and the National Safety Authorities. Dissemination activities towards the EC public audience are described in detail in Section B- 3.2.1 – Dissemination Plan.

All the management activities of the DynoTRAIN project will be undertaken in WP 0.
