	%X This paper proposes a thermal study of the
catenary/pantograph interface for a train in motion. A 2.5D
complex model of the pantograph strip has been defined and created
by a coupling between a 1D and a 2D model. Experimental and
simulation results are presented and with a comparison allow
validating the 2.5D model. Some physical phenomena are described
and presented with the help of the model such as the stagger
motion thermal effect, particular heats and the effect of the material
characteristics. Finally it is possible to predict the critical thermal
configuration during a train trip.
