Advanced light rail transit analysis and design software
Incorporating the trusted AutoTURN engine, AutoTURN Rail 3D is an advanced rail design and analysis solution that expedites the clearance analysis for evaluating new track layout or verifying LRVs on the existing rail track. Beyond the analytical functionalities, AutoTURN Rail 3D can be used for visualisation purposes such as animating realistic 2D vehicles plan views and 3D realistic vehicle model along the path.
A new generation of rail design software is here
Light rail trains are designed to be people-movers, carrying commuters primarily on above-ground tracks to and from the city centre quickly and cost-effectively. AutoTURN Rail 3D helps designers account for all the clearances a light rail train will encounter along any section of track. Once the designs are finalised, designers will use the software to check the safety of their concepts. What used to take eight hours of painstaking work will take a few minutes with AutoTURN Rail 3D.
Accommodating design in the 3D era
As railways become a more prevalent mode of transportation for goods and people, more infrastructure will be needed to accommodate increased ridership. Space is at a premium in many major cities, meaning rail lines will be built with very tight clearances, taking up as little space as possible. Designing in 3D will give planners a precise view of the right-of-way they need and ensure safe operations and accurate planning.
A three-dimensional cross section in AutoTURN Rail 3D can highlight the following elements:
- Top of rail.
- Track rails.
- Structure envelopes (if applicable).
- Static envelopes of light rail vehicles.
- Static inswings and outswings of light rail chicles at curves.
- Light rail vehicle dynamic envelopes.
