The age of faster, longer, safer, quieter and more environmentally friendly trains is here. Safety is the paramount objective of any train design and cannot be compromised at any cost. Physical testing formed an integral part of design in the 1990s, until CAE demonstrated that many complex and unsafe tests could be simulated on a desktop. The NISA product line has helped the railway industry for the last two decades in analyzing many such tests and problems.
