Braking Curves Simulation Tool  
 

The ETCS braking curves algorithm consists of a complex set of equations. The Agency has developed a tool: ERA_Braking_curves_tool_v4.1.zip, which allows predetermining all the braking distances, as they would be computed by the ETCS on-board equipment. The tool allows capturing all train data (including the correction factor K_dryrst obtained from the Monte Carlo calculation) and trackside, which are relevant to the braking curve calculation and displaying graphically the braking distances so calculated.
