Introduction

GENSYS works with a number of files. In order to distinguish between the files, each type of file has its own extension. This manual presents a brief summary of the contents and origin of the files.

For having a better overview of all files the user can chose to store the files in subdirectories. In order to have the files sorted in subdirectories, the user must define the environment variable $gendir and give $gendir the value= yes. The name of the subdirectories are defined in the file $gensys/bin/gen_defs.

*.cata
Output from the program MPLOT, containing a list of all variables and scalars in current ident. The *.cata-file is only written if command catalo has been given in the input data file to program MPLOT.

*.cmplx

The deformations can be animated in program GPLOT, or they can be used as initial values in program CALC using command INITVAL. The file is written as a formatted file, but it is rather complex. In order to make it more readable for humans the user can filter the file through program cata_gp.

*.mauz
Track irregularity file measured in a track measuring car type: Mauzin, Plasser & Theurer, Matisa, or similar track recording vehicle with rollers following the rails making versine measurements. track/Plasser_EM80_side_view.png

The file is built-up as follows:
Row 1)
Text string indicating that this is a track recording file. The text string also gives information about which program that has created the file.
Row 2-4)
Ident text which was given to the program which created the file.
Row 5)
Blank line.
Row 6)
Information on how the track recording file has been created, the following commands are understood:
END = Leading end, A or B.
DXTRAC = The equidistance between the track data points in longitudinal direction.
NPCURV = Number of track measurement points in the actual file.
XSTART = Start coordinate of the track.
LTOT = Length of the track.
Row 7)
Scaling factors which have been used. The scaling factors are written in the same order as the columns are printed.
Row 8)
Information stating what is meant by the columns in the print below.
Row 9-)
Track recording data written in columns. The columns include the following information:
Column 1) Longitudinal distance in [m].
Column 2) Level irregularity, right side [mm].
Column 3) Level irregularity, left side [mm].
Column 4) Mauzin cant irregularity [mm] (Not Used)
Column 5) Twist irregularity [mm]
Column 6) Horizontal versine, right side [mm].
Column 7) Horizontal versine, left side [mm].
Column 8) Gauge [mm].

The columns in the track recording files are often written in format (8F8.2), but any format can be used because all track programs reads the file in free format. Left and right side refers to the side of the coach when an observer stands in the carriage facing end A, with his/her back to end B. The observer's right side is on the right side of the coach.

An example of a track recording file:

sketches/Rail_profile.png
The origin of the rail profile is defined to be a distance RAIL_FL_ORIGO from the gauge measuring point. The gauge measuring point of the rail is defined as follows: the gauge measuring points are the two points on right and left rail located in a vertical interval between top of rail and 14 mm below top of rail which are closest to each other.
For ideal standard gauge tracks, the following is valid:
Lateral semi-spacing between the gauge measuring points = 717.5 mm
Lateral distance between the gauge measuring point and origin RAIL_FL_ORIGO= 32.5 mm
Lateral semi-spacing between "The Nominal Running Circles" = 750 mm

*.stat2
Stat2fil created by MPLOT with the command stat2

*.trac
Trac-file containing track irregularities. The coordinate systems defined in the model follows the designed track geometry, and deviations in the track alignment relative to the designed track geometry is called track irregularities. The trac-file is an ASCII-file containing the following information:
Column 1) Distance along the track (m).
Column 2) Lateral deviation of track center line (mm).
Positive displacement to the right
Column 3) Vertical deviation of track center line (mm).
Positive displacement downwards
Column 4) Gauge irregularity (mm)
Measured at the gauge measuring height, 14[mm] under rail top level.
Column 5) Cant irregularity (mm)
Height difference between right and left rail
Positive if the right rail is lower than left rail
Columns in trac-files are written in format (F6.1, 4F10.2).

*.wheel
Data file describing a wheel profile.
The wheel profile is described in Y- and Z- coordinates. The coordinates should be measured in millimeters. Positive direction for the Y-coordinate is toward the center of the track for both wheels. Positive direction for the Z-coordinate is downwards. The measurements should be accurate, preferable more than one point per 0.1 [mm] in lateral coordinates. The origin of the Y-coordinates should be at the radius where the wheel diameter of the wheel is measured, this diameter is sometimes also called "The Nominal Running Circle".

For standard gauge tracks, the following is valid:
Lateral semi-spacing between the wheels = 680 mm
Lateral distance between inside of the wheel and "The Nominal Running Circle" = 70 mm
Lateral semi-spacing between "The Nominal Running Circles" = 750 mm
