East Midlands Branch Technical Talk

This is an East Midlands Branch event organised and run by our East Midlands for its members. Other members and non-members are welcome to join us.

Overview: Railway Accidents are obviously highly undesirable events, but despite 200 years of experience, they still happen. When accidents occur, it is important that the consequences for the occupants of the train are minimised. This lecture will study the evolution of train crashworthiness up the present day, including a number of case studies
