On the issue of wheel pair motion modelling

The formula derivation for calculating the transversal creep related to contact spots of railway wheels of the wheel pair is given. It is shown that in the modern literature the formula for calculating the transversal creep has no physical justification as the deformation of the contacting materials. Based on the obtained formulas, a mathematical model of wheel pair motion with the nonlinear component is developed.
Keywords: wheel pair, mathematical model, centre of mass, contact spots, creep, creep force, deformation, motion

Ferry transportation - a significant segment of transport logistics

Transport plays a basic role in the national economy. The railway and ferry transportations are an integral part of international transport corridors. They connect surface communications in a single transport network. It is the most effective type of combined transportations. The organization of ferry transportations is the extremely labour-intensive task requiring the integrated control at all stages of freight delivery.
Keywords: Train ferry, ferryboat, ferry efficiency, organization of ferry transportations, transport corridors

The train ferry as a necessary element of the transport system of the Russian Federation

To ensure transport safety of the Kaliningrad region, the stable operation of the Ust-Luga - Baltiysk train ferry is necessary. The demand for ferry services largely depends on the tariff policy for rail transportation in Lithuania and Belarus, which is advisable to take into account in the tariff policy of JSC "RZD".
Keywords: train ferry, transport safety, choice of the transport route, tariff policy

Simulation model of the power supply system traction network

The traction network operation simulation algorithm has been developed by dividing the traction network into simple abstract schemes - aggregates. In this case, the calculated section of traction network along the whole length is divided into cells. This principle of the traction network simulation is a significant advantage both when writing and debugging programs and when using them in operation to solve problems.
Keywords: simulation model of the power supply system, aggregate representation of traction network in the simulation model
