Program system

for calculation of rolling stock main dimensions

What is DIMA?

DIMA (DIMensioning Analysis) is practicable for the calculation of rolling stock main dimensions, that means predefinition of length, width and height of vehicle bodies and running gears using conventional German and European standards.

 

DIMA allows following analysis:

DIMA includes following additional functionality:

DIMA uses following standards and regulations as base:
