Abstract

The multidimensional monitoring of symptoms applied to railway systems allow to detect and locate the sections of the track (straight and curved) that generate the decrement of the safety and comfort of the passengers. It also evaluates the technical state of the rail-vehicle interface. In addition it allows observing, evaluating, and controlling the reliability and availability of the system. The objective of the study is to propose an alternative to evaluate the condition of the technical state of railway systems from a dynamical point of view that guarantees the safety and comfort of the passengers. One looks for diminishing the operative costs of maintenance, improving the use of equipment for tasks of maintenance for the track, vehicle and auxiliary equipment, optimizing the time of the maintenance personal, the maintenance frequencies (corrective, preventive, etc.). It also aims to identify the variables related to maintenance actions that have a high influence on the technical state of the system. This paper presents the results obtained when applying a modeling of this type to a railway system, being centered mainly in the application of SVD theory to the technical diagnosis of systems.
