Research-Educational Centre of Rail Vehicles (VVCKV)

Following the call OPVaA-2008/2.2/01-SORO, Operational programm Research and development, Priority axis 2 Research and development support, Action 2.2 Transfer of knowledge and technology from research and development into practice and follow the project ITMS code: 26220220011 RAILBCOT – Laboratory test bench for railway wheels tread wear analysis, University of Žilina established

 

Research-Educational Center of Rail Vehicles (VVCKV)

 

The purpose and the aim

The main aim of VVCKV is to built the top scientific – research and education workplace for:

  • analysis of braking and adhesion properties of railway wheelset
  • research of conception, design railway vehicles
  • analysis of their components and units
  • analysis of vehicle ride characteristics,
  • analysis of all effects related to design, operation and testing of railway vehicles.

 

From the date 28.11.2012 the VVCKV is branch of Faculty of Mechanical Engineering at the University of Žilina.

Basis for the emergence of  VVCKV is building of Laboratory test bench for railway wheels tread wear analysis – RAILBCOT

 

From previous activities:

During the project were created material, technical and personnel conditions for realization Centre.

  • In the laboratory Department of Transport and Handling Machine was made Laboratory test bench for railway wheels tread wear analysis – RAILBCOT,
  • laboratory was rebuilt for the purposes of research and education in solving a part of the project ITMS 26220220011,
  • infrastructure and applied information and communication tehnologies to guarantee the operation of the built facility were adapted,
  • content was specified and basic dokumentation was created: Memorandum and Statutes for the VVCKV creation,
  • workload texts of Faculty of Mechanical Engineering of employees working according to operation and building requirements of VVCKV were adjusted,
  • during the solution project was submitted request for the dean of Faculty of ...with requirement of VVCKV creation.
     
Research activity
  • already during the solution of project were submitted two projects VEGA with solved issues topics; projects are four-year and they are after the first year of solution,
  • project APVV SIMRAIL was submitted and approved, it is solved from 1.7.2012 to year 2015.
 
Educational activities
  • in August 2012 three Ph.D students successfully graduated, two thesis directly related with project RAILBCOT solution,
  • in September 2012 two female students began to study, they deal directly whith problems RAILBCOT,
  • the project of cross-border cooperation SR-ČR was submitted, whose realization will directly relate with project RAILBCOT solution.

 

Legislation:

Based on all of the above:

  • 25. February 2013 was approved VVCKV the proposal of the dean of Faculty of Mechanical Engineering, approved by the Academic Senate,
  • Memorandumwas signed by the legal representatives of Univerity of Žilina and Faculty of Mechanical Engineering and been put into effect statutes VVCKV,
  • Thedate of commencement of validity of statutes in the generated VVCKV been updated (included into force) prepared job descriptions of employees. Number of employees with duties relating to the targets VVCKV be modified in the course of 2013.
  • Organizational StructureFaculty of Mechanical Engineering (new-given the change in classification VVCKV) was submitted for approval by the Senate and approved by the University of Žilina 7 meeting. Minutes of 7 Meetings of Academic Senate of Faculty of Mechanical Engineering and is available on the web-site of Academic Senate of Faculty of Mechanical Engineering.
