Railway applications - Gauges - Part 3: Infrastructure gauge

This standard:
— defines the various profiles needed to install, verify and maintain the various infrastructures near the infrastructure gauge;
— lists the various phenomena to be taken into account to determine the infrastructure gauge;
— defines a methodology that may be used to calculate the various profiles from these phenomena;
— lists the rules to determine the distance between the track centres;
— lists the rules to be complied with when building the platforms;
— lists the rules to determine the pantograph gauge;
— lists the Formulae needed to calculate the infrastructure gauge.
and is applicable for various track gauges.
This standard defines the gauge as an agreement between infrastructure and rolling stock, and defines the responsibilities of the following parties:
a) for the infrastructure:
1) gauge clearance;
2) maintenance;
3) infrastructure monitoring.
b) for the rolling stock:
1) compliance of the operating rolling stock with the gauge concerned;
2) maintenance of this compliance over time.
For a given defined gauge, the application of the rules contain in this part 3, associated with useful elements contained in EN 15273-4, makes it possible to determine the minimum dimensions of an infrastructure. Therefore, this infrastructure is compatible with vehicle gauge having the same designation, and obtained according to rules defined in EN 15273-2.
Other networks such as urban and suburban may apply the gauging rules defined in this standard but are outside of its scope.
For absolute and comparative gauging, the application of the rules contained within EN 15273-3, combined with vehicle data defined in EN 15273-2 in accordance with EN 15273-1 make it possible to determine the dimensions of infrastructure.
NOTE The rules given in this standard are not applicable to the gauges “S” and “T” referred to in clause 4.2.3.1. (7) & (8) for track gauge 1520 mm of the merged TSI Loc and Pass ( Commission Regulation N° 1302/2014 of 18 November 2014).

Bahnanwendungen - Begrenzungslinien - Teil 3: Infrastrukturbegrenzungslinien

Dieses Dokument:
— legt verschiedene Profile fest, die für die Anordnung, Überprüfung und Instandhaltung lichtraumnaher baulicher Anlagen erforderlich sind;
— legt verschiedene Wirkungsgrößen fest, die bei der Festlegung des jeweiligen Lichtraums zu berücksichtigen sind;
— legt eine Methode fest, mit der — ausgehend von den oben genannten Einflüssen — die verschiedenen Lichtraumprofile berechnet werden können;
— legt die Regeln für die Festlegung des Gleismittenabstands fest;
— legt die Regeln fest, die bei der Anordnung der Bahnsteige zu beachten sind;
— legt die Regeln für die Bestimmung der Begrenzungslinie für Stromabnehmer fest;
— stellt die Gleichungen auf, die für die Berechnung der Lichträume erforderlich sind;
und ist bei unterschiedlichen Spurweiten anwendbar.
In diesem Dokument wird die Begrenzungslinie als Vereinbarung zwischen Infrastruktur- und Fahrzeugbetreibern dargestellt. Außerdem werden die Zuständigkeiten der folgenden beteiligten Gruppen festgelegt:
a) Seitens der Infrastrukturbetreiber:
1) Spiel der Begrenzungslinie;
2) Instandhaltung;
3) Überwachung der Infrastruktur.
b) Seitens des Fahrzeugbaus:
1) die Konformität der eingesetzten Fahrzeuge mit der entsprechenden Begrenzungslinie;
2) der dauerhafte Erhalt der Konformität des Lichtraums.
Bei einer bestimmten vorgegebenen Begrenzungslinie ermöglicht die Anwendung der Regeln im vorliegenden Teil 3 zusammen mit den hilfreichen Elementen in prEN 15273-4 die Bestimmung des Mindestmaßes der Infrastruktur. Daher stimmt diese Infrastruktur mit den Begrenzungslinien der Fahrzeuge überein, die die gleiche Bezeichnung haben und nach den Regeln aus prEN 15273-2 beschafft
werden.
Andere Bahnsysteme, wie Stadt- oder Vorortbahnen, können die in dieser Norm aufgeführten Regeln für Begrenzungslinien ebenfalls anwenden, zählen aber nicht zum Anwendungsbereich dieser Norm.
Bei der absoluten und der vergleichenden Rechenmethode ermöglicht die Anwendung der in prEN 15273-3
enthaltenen Regeln in Verbindung mit den Fahrzeugdaten aus prEN 15273-2 in Übereinstimmung mit EN 15273-1 die Bestimmung der Infrastrukturmaßen.
ANMERKUNG Die Regeln, die in dieser Norm angegeben werden, gelten nicht für die Spurweiten „S“ und „T“, auf die in 4.2.3.1 (7) und (8) für die Spurweite 1 520 mm der zusammengeführten TSI LOC & PAS (Richtlinie der Kommission Nr. 1302/2014 vom 18. November 2014) Bezug genommen wird.

Applications ferroviaires - Gabarits - Partie 3 : Gabarit de l'infrastructure

Le présent document :
— définit les différents profils, nécessaires pour l'implantation, la vérification et l'entretien des différentes infrastructures proches du gabarit d'infrastructure en vigueur ;
— donne les différents phénomènes à considérer pour déterminer le gabarit d'infrastructure en vigueur ;
— définit une méthodologie qui peut être utilisée pour calculer les différents contours, à partir de ces phénomènes ;
— donne les règles pour déterminer l'entraxe ;
— donne les règles à respecter lors de l'implantation des quais ;
— donne les règles pour déterminer le gabarit du pantographe ;
— donne les formules nécessaires pour calculer le gabarit de l’infrastructure ;
et est applicable aux différents écartements de voie.
Le présent document définit le gabarit comme une convention entre l'infrastructure et le matériel roulant, et établit les responsabilités des parties suivantes :
a) côté Infrastructure :
1) le dégagement du gabarit ;
2) la maintenance ;
3) la surveillance des infrastructures.
b) côté Matériel Roulant :
1) la conformité du matériel roulant exploité avec le gabarit concerné ;
2) le maintien de la conformité du gabarit dans le temps.
Pour un gabarit défini donné, l'application des règles de la présente Partie 3, associées aux éléments utiles du prEN 15273-4, permet de déterminer les distances minimales d'une infrastructure. Par conséquent, cette infrastructure est compatible avec le gabarit de véhicule de même désignation et obtenue selon les règles définies dans le prEN 15273-2.
D’autres réseaux, urbains ou péri-urbains par exemple, peuvent appliquer les règles définies dans cette norme, mais sont en dehors de son domaine d’application.
Pour les méthodes absolue et comparative, l'application des règles du prEN 15273-3, combinées aux données de véhicule du prEN 15273-2 conformément au prEN 15273-1, permet de déterminer les dimensions de l'infrastructure.
NOTE les règles données dans cette norme ne s’appliquent pas aux gabarits “S” et “T” mentionnés aux points (7) & (8) du paragraphe 4.2.3.1 de la STI Loc & Pass (Règlement UE N° 1302/2014 de la de la commission du 18 Novembre 2014) pour l’écartement de voie de 1 520 mm.

Introduction

The aim of this standard is to define the rules for the calculation and verification of the dimensions of

rolling stock and infrastructure from a gauging perspective.

This standard describes gauging processes taking into account the relative movements between rolling

stock and infrastructure as well as the necessary margins or clearances.

This part of the series EN 15273 covers rolling stock gauges and is used in conjunction with the following

parts:
— Part 1: Generic explanations and methods of gauging;
— Part 2: Rolling stock;
— Part 4: Catalogue of gauges and associated rules;
— Part 5: Background, explanation and worked examples.

1 Scope
This document:

— defines the various profiles needed to install, verify and maintain the various infrastructures near

the infrastructure gauge,

— lists the various phenomena to be taken into account to determine the infrastructure gauge,

— defines a methodology that may be used to calculate the various profiles from these phenomena,

— lists the rules to determine the distance between the track centres,
— lists the rules to be complied with when building the platforms,
— lists the rules to determine the pantograph gauge,
— lists the formulae needed to calculate the infrastructure gauge,
and is applicable for various track gauges.

This document defines the gauge as an agreement between infrastructure and rolling stock, and defines

the responsibilities of the following parties:
a) for the infrastructure:
1) gauge clearance;
2) maintenance;
3) infrastructure monitoring.
b) for the rolling stock:
1) compliance of the operating rolling stock with the gauge concerned;
2) maintenance of this compliance over time.

For a given defined gauge, the application of the rules contain in this part 3, associated with useful

elements contained in prEN 15273-4, makes it possible to determine the minimum dimensions of an

infrastructure. Therefore, this infrastructure is compatible with vehicle gauge having the same

designation, and obtained according to rules defined in prEN 15273-2.

Other networks such as urban and suburban may apply the gauging rules defined in this standard but are

outside of its scope.

For absolute and comparative gauging, the application of the rules contained within prEN 15273-3,

combined with vehicle data defined in prEN 15273-2 in accordance with make it possible to determine

the dimensions of infrastructure.

NOTE The rules given in this standard are not applicable to the gauges “S” and “T” referred to in 4
