The paper sets out to present considerations and some result from track/vehicle investigations area. The goal of the investigations was to build up a modular software tool for carrying out complex study: theoretical and experimental ones, on the relations between travelling speed and forces within the wheel-rail contact zone depending on the state of track maintenance. The basic assumptions of the study were: frequency range of the interest: 0 - 25 Hz, the track is epresented by rigid rails, the state of the track maintenance is represented by geometrical irregularities of the track which were excitations of the motion in the simulation process, the passenger car with bogies type MD522 was taken as an object of the investigations.
