Driving Resistance from Railroad Trains

Erik Bjørn Grønning Lindgreen, Spencer C Sorenson

Research output: Book/ReportReportResearch


This report methods and parameters for calculating the driving resistance of railroad trains. Calculations and comparisons are presented for aerodynamic, rolling and total resistance for a variety of freight trains under different loading conditions, operating speed and configuration. Simplified methods are presented for the estimation of the driving resistance for passenger trains. This report is a supplement to the ARTEMIS rail emissions model.
