COMBINO has become synonymous with modern trams throughout Europe. This modular concept has enabled economical, comfortable, spacious and elegant trams to be constructed from aluminium and they are found in many cities such as Amsterdam, Basel and Bern.
We were involved in the development and prototype phase. Intensive FE calculations were carried out on the individual modules to investigate strength and rigidity in a series of predefined load scenarios.
Progress came in leaps and bounds during the development phase thanks to close collaboration with the project management team, open communication with the client, the ability to react flexibly to changes in decisions and the prompt delivery of results.
