ETCS training : The importance of the simulators fidelity by NS

“A simulator that faithfully reproduces the driver’s everyday environment” Interview with Carl Kleibeuker, senior instructor, NS (Netherlands) What factors led to NS choosing its ETCS training simulator? As an instructor, I didn’t get to have a say in which one we chose. However, I did have to give an opinion about how faithful the simulator … Read more

ETCS : using a simulator to prepare and train your staff

CORYS’ ETCS simulator offers operators, infrastructure managers, and certification bodies the perfect way to anticipate this major change. A dozen or so of our clients, spread across seven countries, are already using it. The key feature of this simulator is that it complies with EU SRS standards for Baselines 2 and 3, allowing users to … Read more

Motion systems for simulators : why 5 DOF is better than 6 DOF

No, the 6 DOF motion system is not necessarily the best choice for a full-scope train, subway and tramway simulator. 5 DOF is more realistic, less bulky and not necessarily more expensive. Demonstration. What is the difference between a 5 DOF and a 6 DOF, from the user’s point of view? Not much, just one … Read more

Ultralight simulator

The ultralight simulator is now appearing in classrooms, featuring a curved 3-D screen depicting the track and landscape, a 24-inch touchscreen for the console, and two controls for the basic commands. The main advantage is the blend of realism and simplicity. After the fact, this seems obvious, but somebody had to come up with the … Read more

THOR Advanced Thermal Hydraulics Models

THOR is a two-phase, non-equilibrium, fluid dynamics model for flow networks. CORYS offers THOR to the simulation industry for modeling complex, multi-phase fluid systems with high fidelity results.  THOR is installed on more nuclear power plant simulators than any other advanced thermal hydraulics model.  The THOR models have been benchmarked extensively through more than 80 … Read more

A fullscope simulator weighing just 740 kg

The fullscope cab simulator to be delivered in early 2017 to Queensland Rail, Australia is three times lighter than a conventional simulator. Not only that – it has a 6-DOF motion platform, offers training for five different trains, and didn’t cost any more than usual. Queensland Rail’s original problem was not one of weight but … Read more

Thermal hydraulics advanced models with MELCOR codes
