WP1 deals with modelling the non-linear behaviour of track elements using excitation models and is led by ISVR.

WP2develops detailed BE models to account for the dynamic interaction of tunnel-soil-pile and is led by DVRG.

WP3is concerned with developing a computationally efficient tool for calculating vibration from trains and is led by ISVR.
