The TTCI Technology Digest contains decades of rail technology research.

TTCI

For the first time, the Transportation Technology Center, Inc., (TTCI) provides open access to three decades of its rail technology research conducted under the Strategic Research Initiatives (SRI) program of the American Railways Association (AAR).

Technology Digest, a weekly publication highlighting key research findings and industry project reports, is now available to the public through the new TTCI electronic library. New Digests of technology will be available in the electronic library 60 days after their initial distribution to AAR member subscribers.

This keyword search archive covers SRI research from 1992 to the present and is now active at https://www.ttci.tech/technology-digest-elibrary

The SRI program addresses many of the industry’s priority issues and provides key analyzes and solutions for the secure deployment of new technologies. AAR-funded SRI projects are proposed, refined and selected by technical teams consisting of leading engineers and specialists from across the railway industry. Each project is carefully selected to address significant challenges, opportunities and technological innovations affecting the industry. TTCI Ttechnological digests summarize the key findings and results of SRI projects by providing railways and suppliers with important technical information related to many aspects of rail transport, including rail-rail interaction, advanced wheels and rail materials, special track structures, bridges, vehicle dynamics dynamics, and research dynamics. , and more.
