Users Manual for Program CONV_MINIPROF2KPF_RAIL




Program CONV_MINIPROF2KPF_RAIL converts rail profiles measured by the miniprof profile measuring instrument into a format suitable for program KPF.




Command line options


Following options are understood:

-h = Write an information message
-M = Create a master input data file.
arg(1) = Input-data-file


INPUT DATA

Input data are read in free format:


ADJUST_ZERO
If set equal to "yes" the rail profile will be zero set according to:
kpf/rail_w_origo_small.jpg
Declared= Character*3    Default= 'yes'

GAUGE_MEAS_INTERVAL
Vertical interval relative to Top of Rail when finding the Gauge Measuring Point. This point is a point on the rail that is closest to the track center line, and is located on the surface of the rail between Top of Rail and GAUGE_MEAS_INTERVAL beneath.
Declared= Real*4    Default= 14. [mm]

GAUGE_TO_ORIGO
Lateral distance from the inside of the rail to the nominal running circle.
Declared= Real*4    Default= 32.5 [mm]

INFIL
Miniprof file of a rail profile measurement.
Multiple files can be given by using the "*"-wildcard character.
N.B. The input data file must include the initial miniprof-headings. The empty line after the header lines initiates the reading of the measured profile.
Lines in INFIL beginning with the #-character are treated as comments.
Declared= Character*132    Default= '*.ban'

TURN
Reverse the profile(s) before writing the result to the output.
Declared= Character*3    Default= 'no'

UTFIL_EXT
File extension of the output data file(s).
Declared= Character*132    Default= '.rail'



Example of an input data file

Following example: Master.conv_miniprof2kpf_railf can be used as a master file:

##
##     Input data for program "conv_miniprof2kpf_rail"
##

  ADJUST_ZERO   = yes
  GAUGE_MEAS_INTERVAL= 14
  GAUGE_TO_ORIGO= 32.5
  TURN          = no

  INFIL    = *.ban
  UTFIL_EXT= .rail
