INTERACTION BETWEEN VEHICLES AND TRACK. A COMPARISON OF THEORETICAL AND EXPERIMENTAL VEHICLE BEHAVIOUR USING A 2-AXLED SPECIAL VEHICLE
The investigation described in ORE report C 116/RP 2 has been carried out by British Railways on behalf of ORE. Its purpose is to compare theoretical predictions of vehicle behaviour with experimental measurements of the same quantities, under conditions of stationary random excitation by the track roughness. The vehicle used is British Railways' experimental 2-axled freight vehicle HSFV5 (slightly modified). This was selected as being the simplest suitable vehicle and, to simplify the calculations, the characteristics of its suspension system had been linearised.
