To speed up simulation times, most wheel/rail-coupling elements requires that the wheel- and rail- profiles
are given via so called "wheel/rail-geometry functions".
These functions are created by preprocessor KPF.
However wheel/rail-coupling element creep_tanel_springs_1 do not need pre-calculated wheel/rail-geometry functions.
|gp||Animation files created by pre-processor KPF|
|kpff||Input data for program KPF|
|kpfr||Wheel/rail-geometry functions created by pre-processor KPF|
|r_prof||A directory containing rail profiles|
|runf||Model of a wheelset|
Double-click file kpff/uic60_i40_i20.kpff and select open->run with the right mouse button. The execution of program KPF will now start, using file kpff/uic60_i40_i20.kpff as input.
As output three result files will be produced:
|kpfr/uic60_i40_i20.kpfr||Wheel/rail-geometry function to be used as input in the main calculation programs in GENSYS|
|diags/uic60_i40_i20.pdf||A PDF file showing the wheel/rail-geometry functions|
|gp/uic60_i40_i20.gp||GPdat-file for animation of the wheel/rail-geometry functions|
File kpfr/uic60_i40_i20.kpfr is a plain text-file. Just mark the file by double-clicking the file and with the right mouse-button select open->op
File diags/uic60_i40_i20.pdf is a PDF file. View its contents by double-clicking the file and with the right mouse-button select open->run
