Detection and alleviation of the abnormal vibration of the monorail based on experiment and simulation

Wheel out of round, which has a significant influence on the ride comfort of vehicles, is very difficult to detect, especially for vehicles with rubber tires like a monorail. The prominent feature of wheel eccentricity caused by wheel out of round is that there will be a dominant frequency of the vehicle acceleration that varies with the speed of the vehicle, while the wavelengthes are all equal to the wheel circumference. By studying the experimental results of Chongqing straddle monorail, an indirect detection method of the wheel out of round is put forward. Then a simulation model of the monorail vehicle under the influence of the wheel out of round is established. The numerical analysis and experimental results lead to that the main reason for the abnormal vibration of the vehicle is the wheel out of round. Through the analysis of the vertical dynamic equation of the monorail system, all other factors that may affect the dominant frequency of vehicle vibration are analyzed. Finally, it is concluded this abnormal vibration caused by wheel out of round can only be reduced by increasing the vertical stiffness of the air spring and car body mass other than changing wheels.
