Assess your track infrastructure more thoroughly for less cost using the Digital Twin capabilities of VAMPIRE®.

ENSCO has acquired the source code for VAMPIRE, the world-renowned vehicle/track interaction software used for vehicle and track assessments in simulation. VAMPIRE has historically been used by engineers and consultants to manually perform simulations of rolling stock traversing tracks and predicting key items such as derailment risk, wheel/rail forces, ride quality, and wear index.

With control of the source code, ENSCO has implemented automated VAMPIRE to operate in the cloud or onboard inspection vehicles. It automatically simulates vehicles with measured track geometry and rail profile data in near real-time without human intervention.

Derailment Prevention

  • Reduce derailments by identifying and dealing with high-risk locations before they cause a problem.

Performance Based Maintenance

  • Establish performance-based track geometry tolerances that ensure safety and maximize effective and efficient use of maintenance resources.

Prioritize measured geometry defects using vehicle dynamics derailment risk results from simulations over each defect location.

Users can also import the results of the Automated VAMPIRE into the Automated Maintenance Advisor for track condition deterioration trending.
