Metallic objects CAD design for Big Metal Masses Research
Both Balises and onboard system suffers from metallic objects on track. Some of them would have slight impact on the transmission performance, while some of them would trigger alarms for onboard system.
Measurements with big metal masses have been performed in lab with a reference loop which is a lab equipment. It would be interesting and beneficial to do a research, to see the feasibility of characterising with the antenna which is already mounted on the train. In this way, the antenna can be used on a test train or maintenance vehicle for preventive purposes.
Problem description and goals
The feasibility study has two parts, the first step is to investigate different metallic object that would appear on track and that would have impact on the onboard system(e.g. cause sporadic antenna test failure). The second step is the feasibility study of BMM characterisation with the existing antenna on the train.
The scope of this thesis will focus on the first part above. Within the required responsibilities you should:
- Perform a technological survey of the metallic objects that might be placed on track and might appear on track.
- Perform a research for metallic objects which wouldn’t appear on real track, but would provide informative data for the feasibility study of the characterization with train antenna.
- Based on the study above, do design calculations and CAD design of the metallic objects(DfM)
For this thesis work we would like to have students who are in the study of M.Sc. in Mechanical Engineering with good theoretical knowledge and proven practical experience in the following areas:
- Mechanical CAD design
- Design for manufacturing
- Fluent in English
