Innovations in 2021:

Hyperstrooct Project
In 2021, Inse Rail launched, in collaboration with the CDTI (Centre for the Development of Industrial Technology), the HYPERSTROOCT innovation project.

The goal of this innovation project is to design and develop a computerized system to simulate the structural response and vehicle-structure interaction for Hyperloop viaducts, making it possible to automate the design calculations of the viaducts in order to evaluate and then build them.

The many innovative goals of this project include resolving the problem of structural analysis of vehicle movement along viaducts or similar infrastructure in the Hyperloop system, and also determining the predicted response for the structure and the vehicle in terms of movement, deformation, stress and strain. It is also essential to obtain results that can be applied to the engineering, such making it possible to study alternatives that are comparable to each other in order to assess the required construction time and the necessary investment, or planning the line and its division into sections based on the route specifications and surrounding conditions.

The HYPERSTROOCT project is being developed by INSE RAIL, and is expected to be operational in 2023.

Asfatool Project
In 2019, Inse Rail launched, in collaboration with the CDTI (Centre for the Development of Industrial Technology), the ASFATOOL innovation project, a software tool that makes it possible to analyze, calculate and validate the ASFA systems on conventional railways.

The ASFATOOL project seeks to solve the current safety limitations affecting the Digital ASFA system. The tool obtained facilitates the validation of ASFA systems in terms of safety, considering both the infrastructure and the characteristics of the rolling stock transiting it, in terms of size, speed and number (evaluating traffic management situations).

The ASFATOOL project has been developed by a consortium made up of INSE RAIL and Airtren, and it is operational since 2021.
