Modelling longitudinal waves in a long train-set


Introduction

The train-set consists of one locomotive m_loco pulling 36 waggons m_waggon_tare carrying load m_load. The train-set enters an upwards slope which causes a retardation of the locomotive which compresses the train-set. On top of the upward slope max power on the locomotive is applied which pulls all waggons apart again. When the acceleration wave reaches the last waggon of the train-set, the longitudinal acceleration has grown into a level which causes sliding of its load.
