Ganz-Mavag has developed a single instrument that will give an instantaneous scale reading of horizontal and vertical ride index values, and will total up fatigue units on decatron valve counters. It also produces a trace recording of the ride. Accelerometers measure the vertical and lateral accelerations. Conversion of the signals generated by the accelerometers into instantaneous mean values of riding quality is performed by electronic circuits, as is the generation of fatigue unit impulses. Another test has to be performed with the speed of the test train rising from zero to the maximum value uniformly over the length of the test section. To obtain a final result it is necessary to obtain mean values from the information recorded on the charts during these tests.
