DYNAMIC BEHAVIOR OF THIRD CONTACT SHOE FOR HIGH SPEED TRANSPORTATION
Demand for higher speed ground transportation is dependent upon suitable methods for collecting electrical energy to power vehicle; dynamic response of electric contact shoe and rail system is considered; analytical models are presented and applied to typical design for contact shoe; rational design approach is developed and design modifications for high speed operation are recommended.
