Hump Yard model tutorial
We will use AnyLogic Rail
Library in this tutorial to build a model of a hump yard. A hump yard is a
yard where cars are taken to a hump from where they are driven to
classification tracks by the force of gravity.
Arriving trains contain cars of 5 different types
are sent to 5 departure tracks. Once 8 cars of the same type accumulate
on a departure track they are driven away as a newly formed train.
AnyLogic Rail Library
- Rail Library allows you to efficiently
model, simulate and
visualize operation of rail yards and rail transportation of any
complexity and scale. Classification yards, rail yards of large plants,
railway stations, rail car repair facilities, subways, airport shuttle
trains, rail in container terminals, trams can be easily yet accurately
modeled with this library.
- Rail Library is well integrated with
Library and Pedestrian Library, which
means you can combine rail models
with models of trucks, cranes, ships, passenger flows, manufacturing or
business processes, and so on.
