EcoTrain – Very High Speed Train
ISQ is part of a consortium – led by Amorim Cork Composites and also including Alstom Portugal and PIEP – for the development of new composite cork components to be installed in very high speed trains.
For this project, ISQ has developed an eco-design and has performed a life cycle assessment and mechanical testing on materials that may be used on train floors, side panels and partitions.
Interail – mobile track inspection and diagnostics in a single pass
This European Union R&D and NDC project, coordinated by ISQ in a 13 European partners consortium, includes companies and universities from seven countries.
Five different rail inspection technologies in a single rail vehicle, diagnosing the track the vehicle is running on, identifying rail defects and logging the condition of the track. The vehicle’s wheelsets are fitted with ultrasound and electromagnetic systems that “see” inside the rail and detect cracks. Devices that measure track imperfections, rail grinding and the track profile dimensions are also installed. The system is fully integrated and inspection can be carried out at speeds of more than 80 km/h. The system can be used in railways worldwide for agile non-destructive rail inspection and diagnostics.
