Generation of filling curves of railway stations


The method of “filling curves” allows the

design or verification of the stop capacity of railway stations,

associated with a fixed service quality level, with a

synthetic approach, i.e. not related to the topology of the

station but to some “global” parameters such as the number

of tracks.

The purpose of the brief is to describe some methods for

constructing filling curves of railway stations as functions

of both the expected quality level and the traffic volume and

the arrival distribution law.
