A numerical method using VAMPIRE modeling for the dynamic performance of wagon passing through a turnout is present wth special concern of wheel-rail wear. The objective is to investigate the potential benefit of operation strategy with respect to minimising wheel-rail wear. The simulation shows that the travel speed significantly affects the wheel-rail wear for passing the turnout.
