DYNAMIC RESPONSE OF A RAPID TRANSIT VEHICLE TO RANDOM GUIDEWAY ROUGHNESS
Measured roadway roughness data and the transfer function for a five-degrees-of-freedom model of a rapid transit vehicle are used for determining vertical and lateral passenger motion of a rapid transit vehicle. Optimization studies are used for spring and damping parameters to minimize passenger discomfort for the input spectra associated with the sums and difference of the measured random individual wheel input profiles.
