Innovations in 2022: 

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.

Galibrail Project

In 2022, Inse Rail launched, in collaboration with the CDTI (Centre for the Development of Industrial Technology), the GALIBRAIL innovation project. 
The purpose of the GALIBRAIL project is to design and develop a computerized system to calculate and analyze railway gages that takes all of the elements of a railway line, its environment and rolling stock into consideration, and applies new algorithms to calculate and dimension the maximum measurements to validate the traffic conditions in the current real situation.
Since gage calculation is the basic pillar for developing new rail corridors, diversifying the operation of existing ones, and enabling interoperability in international traffic, the need for this previously non-existent automated calculation system to address this aspect is now more necessary than ever, and will represent a significant competitive advantage for Inse Rail when this innovation project is successfully completed.

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