Surface covering for transports (tramways, guided systems)

In view of the many surface public transport systems that have given rise to damage to platforms leading to sometimes costly litigation, the aim of the INDUIT project was to gain better understanding of the pathologies and....

The methodology consisted of studying and building knowledge bases starting out from current state-of-the art, so as to be able to assess the performance of existing designs, as far as the guide system / covering tandem is concerned, according to criteria of maintainability, availability, overall cost during the lifetime of the equipment, and architectural criteria.

In view of the many surface public transport systems that have given rise to damage to platforms leading to sometimes costly litigation, the aim of the INDUIT project was to gain better understanding of the pathologies and to draw up recommendations covering the field of technological innovations and organisational procedures for these new modes of transport that include modern tramways and other systems, whether or not they run on tyres.
