Ensuring the strength of the load-bearing components of a rail vehicle is one of the most important tasks in the development of these products. The structures of the load-bearing components of a rail vehicle must provide decades of service without failure. Wheelsets, bogie frames and car bodies have to be designed for 'safe life' in any case, as there is no fallback option. This course will focus on the strength and collision safety-compliant design of the car body and the corresponding verification procedure as well as the structural verifications of the bogie frame and wheelsets.
