Harmotrack Project Final Event

28th February 2024, Paris UIC HQ


The UIC Harmotrack Project final event will take place on 28th February at UIC Headquarters (Paris) from 9h to 17h.
Organised by the UIC and SNCF Réseau, this final event aims to be a great opportunity to gather the Harmotrack community and for disseminating the results and outcomes of the project, highlighting how they can be implemented among the members.

Bringing together 65 member companies and institutions with more than 200 international railway experts, the Harmotrack project is present in 35 different countries from 6 continents all around the globe. The Harmotrack Project objectives were as follows:

  • Establish an international benchmark to carry out a State of the Art of measurement techniques for dynamic responses (accelerations and forces);
  • Define the domain of use for the acceleration measurements;
  • Define representative/reliable indicators of track quality (increased vigilance, interventions, or slowdowns) based on accelerations for an improved network maintenance and simulation purpose;
  • Contribute to enhance safety and reduce costs on all networks by prioritising correction of track geometry defects, focusing on those with the most dangerous impact on vehicle dynamics; and
  • Propose these thresholds on accelerations in future international standards or technical recommendations.

The event will be held in English.
