Summary: The Project develops on original procedure for the determination of primary parameters for the railway line route. The optimal characteristics of the route have been determined by interdisciplinary approach. The main principle of the procedure is to express all annual costs and social effects in relation to the velocity of passenger trains per unit of operation. The increase in the train velocity divrgently affects the costs and social effects. The points at which there are minimum differences represent optimal velocities. The project includes extensive investigation related to various influences of exploitation conditions upon the costs, i.e. optimal parameters of the route, such as the volume and structure of the traffic, site conditions, type of trains, and other relevant factors. Mathematical models have been developed for all primary parameters, wich are adaptable to elektronic computers.

Keywords: Optimum, Reilroad line, Matematical models

Research goals: The objective of this research Project is to improve the previously developed numerical models applied to the selection of optimal element of the railroad route. The models are primarily intended for the simulation of real conditions during the exploitation phase and should be as simple as possible granting satisfactory accuracy. The suggested investigations are primarily theoretical, but they should be applied in practice in order to select the optimal elements for the railroads route. The paper should establish the cause-effect relationship between the applied elements of the route and the influence upon the investment and exploitation costs as well as the social effects under various conditions such as: conditions of the terrain, volume and structure of the traffic, types of train traction etc. All developed model should be incorporated into the respective software for practical application. Certain contribution of this paper is expected in the field of legislation which should be throughly rewieded.
