Subject area: Impact of weather on vehicles and components
What it is: The Vienna Climatic Wind Tunnel operated by Rail Tec Arsenal provides the opportunity to investigate the impact of weather on vehicles and components under realistic operating conditions. Any weather conditions can be produced at the push of a button – from intense solar radiation through to snow, rain and ice. The combination with wind, load and drive cycle simulations allows the implementation of realistic test scenarios. The facility has been specially designed for climatic tests on rail vehicles, but also ensures optimal testing conditions for road vehicles in general and busses and trucks in particular. The presentation will contain the demonstration of services and test scenarios.
