KEYWORDS: Passenger train braking performance model; PTC braking enforcement algorithms; positive train control
ABSTRACT: Transportation Technology Center, Inc., identified the requirements for developing a passenger train braking performance model, which herein results in submission of a stand-alone model requirements document, a summary of responses to an industry survey of passenger equipment and brake hardware, and suggestions to move forward with a passenger train braking performance model capable of evaluating positive train control braking enforcement algorithms.
