PWI: Efficient tunnel assessment


Stuart Allabush; Principal Permanent Way Engineer, WSP
Mark Butler; Principal Rail Systems Analyst, WSP


With the introduction of new rolling stock and the installation of new systems within rail tunnels there is increased demand in determining appropriate clearances. Traditional methods are well known but are often time consuming.

Stuart Allabush and Mark Butler of WSP (formerly Parsons Brinckerhoff) will present different approaches to assessing tunnel clearances in a more ef cient manner.
The discussion will include data capture and processing, the build-up of rolling stock kinematic envelopes and the cassessment of results.
WSP has been developing visualisation systems to aid in the communication of the ndings and examination of alternative designs.
