THE HUNTING BEHAVIOUR OF CONVENTIONAL RAILWAY TRUCKS

A study of hunting, taking into account the non-linear effects, such as the intervention of the flanges, and the behaviour of the adhesion. The author shows the equations covering the system, in the case of two bogie-models, as well as the system of external forces applied, based on the interactions between the rail and the wheel tread, and the reactions of the flanges. The systems of equations were resolved by means of a computer. The author shows the conclusions reached, as a result of the calculations made, concerning the hunting frequencies, the riding stability, and the contacts between the flanges and the rail, which are different from those reached as a result of a study based on linear hypotheses. Reference is made in the bibliography to a number of basic studies of the subject.
