Transoft Solutions recently launched its new AutoTURN Rail 3D passenger rail design software. The design functions include recreating various vehicle configurations from manufacturer’s specifications to be used to check design, generating preliminary information for station and platform design, anticipating maintenance yard impacts with other vehicles and structures, and refining design for pedestrian walkways.
AutoTURN Rail 3D is an advanced rail design and analysis solution that expedites the clearance analysis for evaluating new track layout or verifying LRVs on the existing rail track. Beyond the analytical functionalities, AutoTURN Rail 3D can be used for visualization purposes such as animating realistic 2D vehicles plan views and 3D realistic vehicle model along the path.
AutoTURN Rail 3D helps designers account for all the clearances a light rail train will encounter along any section of track. Once the designs are finalized, designers will use the software to check the safety of their concepts. What used to take eight hours of painstaking work will take a few minutes with AutoTURN Rail 3D.
A three-dimensional cross section in AutoTURN Rail 3D can highlight the following elements:
• Top of Rail
• Track Rails
• Structure envelopes (if applicable)
• Static envelopes of light rail vehicles
• Static inswings and outswings of light rail vehicles at curves
• Light rail vehicle dynamic envelopes
