This paper presents a mathematical model of longitudinal dynamics of Gatimaan Express. It has one locomotive class WAP5, two generator vans, eight second class chair cars and two executive chair cars respectively. Forces associated with longitudinal dynamics of model are developed in Matlab/Simulink. Longitudinal and coupler forces as well longitudinal velocities are studied during the failure of coupler of 3rd (coach of middle train) second class chair. Validation of longitudinal velocity of the model is done by comparing simulated results with measured field data provided by Research Designs Standards Organization (RDSO), Lucknow, India.
Key words: Longitudinal velocity / coupler force / longitudinal force / Matlab/Simulink®
