EXPERIMENTS HAVE DETERMINED THE FORCES BETWEEN THE WHEELS AND RAIL

This is the third of a series of articles discussing the wheel and rail loadings developed by diesel locomotives. The data is based on calculations and experiments conducted by Electro-Motive. The information may assist in explaining and preventing some of the derailments which railroads encounter. The next installment will discuss the "dynamic" profile of track and its measurement.
