The tragic derailing of an Amtrak train near Philadelphia points out just one of the challenges facing the modern railroad industry — safety. The industry also must contend with rising energy costs, fast growth of capacity requirements in emerging markets, increasing certification costs and interoperability requirements.
The “Reliability, Availability, Maintainability and Safety” link (RAMS, EN-50126) and “Railway Applications —Communication, Signaling and Processing Systems” (EN-50128) standards establish specifications for rail systems, sub-systems and components. EN-50128 specifically deals with product development processes for software-based controls, human-machine interfaces and power electronics.
Together, these standards bring increasing complexity to the rail transportation market.
ANSYS develops engineering simulation software used to predict how product designs will behave and how manufacturing processes will operate in real-world environments. More than 40,000 customers around the world use ANSYS software. These include 96 of the top 100 industrial companies on the FORTUNE 500 list and more than 2,400 academic institutions around the globe.
ANSYS continually advances simulation solutions by developing or acquiring the very best technology, then integrating it into a unified and customizable simulation platform that allows engineers to efficiently perform complex simulations involving the interaction of multiple physics. The company also provides system services to manage simulation processes and data — all so engineers and product developers can spend more time designing and improving products and less time using software and searching for data. Engineering simulation is our sole focus.
