Final Report - MODBRAKE (Innovative modular brake concepts for the integrated European high-speed railway system)

Project ID: 31498
Funded under: FP6-SUSTDEV

Abstract

This is the final report of the MODBRAKE research project. The project was co-financed by the European Commission under the Sixth Framework Programme (FP6) for Research and Technological Development, with a total budget of EUR 4,9 million and contributed to one of the main objectives of the EU policy in railway transportation: the realisation of interoperability and standardisation for the brake system. MODBRAKE has developed specifications for reliable, affordable and interoperable brake systems of brake modules which will serve as input for the European standardisation bodies CEN and Cenelec.

The report begins with the motivation as derived from current state of the art in the European railway system and describes the subsequent objectives. It later presents the methodology of the project and its structure in work packages, through a series of flowcharts and then goes into explaining the work done under each work package.
