CarF Envelope and Tractrix Curve Module

A just as important aspect of factory planning is the calculation of tractrix and envelope curves. You can have the tractrix and envelope curves calculated and generated for road and rail vehicles using the CarF Tractrix curve module.

Benefit from a very extensive preselection of vehicles of all types, be it cars, lorries or trailers – with and without trailers. Even buses and articulated lorries, with all their axles, can be calculated using the tractrix curve module. Gigaliners in various forms can also be calculated.

Reversing manoeuvres are also possible with the CarF Tractrix curve module.

In addition to road vehicles, you can also calculate and represent the tractrix and envelope curves for rail vehicles. The gradients are taken into account in the curves. All calculations are based on precise kinematic and graphical values so that you get an exact result for better planning.

You can also have the calculation results animated to better understand the drive behaviour of the vehicle or train.
