Urban rail vehicles can present many types of architecture, definitely different from those of traditional rail vehicles. When dealing with long articulated tramcars, complex coupling effects between the vertical and lateral dynamics may arise. Making reference to a modern tramcar, the coupling phenomena are investigated in detail by means of numerical simulation, considering the dynamic behaviour during the negotiation of curves with or without superelevation.
