Railway applications - Aerodynamics - Part 6: Requirements and test procedures for cross wind assessment
This document gives guidelines for the cross wind assessment of railways.
This document is applicable to all passenger vehicles, locomotives and power cars (with a maximum train speed above 140 km/h up to 360 km/h) and freight wagons (with a maximum train speed above 80 km/h up to 160 km/h) and track gauges from 1 435 mm to 1 668 mm inclusive. For passenger vehicles, locomotives and power cars with a maximum train speed between 250 km/h and 360 km/h, a requirement to demonstrate the cross wind stability is imposed. This document is not applicable to light rail and urban rail vehicles.
