#### Workflow

- If you don't have the input file yet you can download it here
- Set parameters in input file
- Choose SC configuration and upload input file
- For the 1 Mast SCs there are two configurations (see About page): moving direction right and left
- Choose a computation mode:
**Proof**(computes the proofs for given configurations) or**Min. Diameter**(computes for given configuration min. diameter so that all proofs are fullfilled) - Start computation, which will take a couple of seconds
- After computation download result file
- Possible errors will be displayed

#### Result file structure

The result file will have two sheets.

##### Summary

- For computation mode "Min. Diameter": min. diameter that fullfilled all proofs. (
*NaN*means that there was no wheel geometry for which all proofs were fulfilled) - Results of static and fatigue proof for both wheels and rail (True=Fulfilled, False=Not fulfilled)
- Input data of each configuration

##### Results

- For computation mode "Min. Diameter": min. diameter that fullfilled all proofs
- Detailed results of static and fatigue proof for both wheels and rail
- Input data of each configuration
