Users Manual for Program group KPF



kpf
The main program that creates the wheel-rail geometry functions. The functions are created from measured or designed wheel and rail profiles.

kpf_plot
A program that plots wheel-rail geometry functions, written on a KPF output format.

kpf_rot
This program rotates a point cluster about origin. The cluster might for instance be a rail profile that should be inclined in relation to measured inclination.

kpf_turn
This program is obsolete, please use program FILE_UPDOWN instead.

conv_kpfr2matlab
Converts wheel/rail-geometry kpfr-files into matlab m-files.

conv_RS2009_to_kpf_rail
Converts rail profiles measured by the RailScan profile measuring instrument into a format suitable for program KPF.

conv_WS2009_to_kpf_wheel
Converts wheel profiles measured by the WheelScan profile measuring instrument into a format suitable for program KPF.

conv_miniprof2kpf_rail
Converts rail profiles measured by the miniprof profile measuring instrument into a format suitable for program KPF.

conv_miniprof2kpf_wheel
Converts wheel profiles measured by the miniprof profile measuring instrument into a format suitable for program KPF.

conv_strix2kpf
Converts rail profiles measured by the STRIX track recording car into a format suitable for program KPF.

pre_contact
Calculates the distances between the surfaces of wheel and rail. Contact pressure distribution in contact point can also be calculated.

conv_spak2kpf <in-file> <out-file>
Converts rail or wheel profiles measured by the SPAK profile measuring instrument into a format suitable for program KPF.

trans_FIT2rail <in-file> <out-file>
Converts rail profiles written in FIT-format, into a format suitable for program KPF.
