Some of the basic facts are outlined for the definition and control of vibration and shock in railway vehicles and their loads. The action of conic wheelsets and the kinematic motion of wheelsets are clearly illustrated and describe the hunting principle. A laterally restrained wheelset connected to a high inertia vehicle body by perfectly elastic lateral springs is described and the stability criterion is shown. These theories are then applied to the analysis of railway vehicle stability and response.
