Abstract

This paper presents some particular escalator modelling features and methodologies developed to dramatically reduce time cost regarding two aspects: computation and implementation. CITEF (Railway Technologies Research Centre) has been modelling escalators for three years. During this time, several static, kinematic and dynamic escalator models have been developed and improved. In parallel, automation tools mainly intended for saving time cost have been described in a piecemeal fashion. These tools are based on the repetitiveness of the bodies, and a definition of the joints, forces and loops, and on the cyclic movement of most of the bodies involved. In addition, noise signals have been programmed from MATLAB to simulate them in SIMPACK software in order to apply robust design methods for studying and optimizing certain parameters.
