Hump Yard model tutorial
We will use AnyLogic
in this tutorial to build a model of a hump yard. A hump yard is a classification 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 that 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
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.
is well integrated with
Process Modeling Library
Pedestrian Library, which means you can combine rail models with models of trucks, cranes, ships, passenger flows, manufacturing or business processes, and so on.
