Holding Force 2017

Start: 2017-01-1

End: 2017-12-31

Project code: 2017/FRE/551

Project director: Hans Gunther KERSTEN

Project manager: Bernard SCHMITT

The holding force will become compulsory shortly.

The new calculation methodology has been defined by the WG B126-13h issued from the Rail System Forum.

A set of braking tests are necessary to ensure the required calculation factors. According to this methodology, the uncertainty factor will get lower and the needed amount of handbrakes the trains should be fitted with, defined.

Currently there is no standardized calculation method to stop blocks; the results should lead to a defined holding force. The outcomes of the project will be included in the respective leaflets.
