Abstract

The paper presents an analytic method for estimating capacity for repeated traffic patterns on a railway section. The vision is to use the method as a basis for developing tools for infrastructure analysis that supports the process of designing infrastructure that meet the traffic needs. The idea underlying the method is that traffic patterns can be modelled as discrete event systems, where the events considered are associated with trains waiting for other trains. The Swedish National Rail Administration (Banverket) supports the research from which the presented ideas result.
