WORK OF PROFESSOR HEUMANN IN THE FIELD OF GUIDED TRANSPORT, IN THE CONTEXT OF CURRENT WHEEL/RAIL TECHNIQUES

PROF. HEUMANNS ARBEITEN AUF DEM GEBIET DER SPURFUEHRUNG IM ZEICHEN DER HEUTIGEN RAD/SCHIENE-TECHNIK

The Heumann process for determining guidance forces and their conditions is described and compared with the current state of progress in wheel/rail techniques. The figures evaluated were confirmed by the experimental figures obtained by the CFF during journeys made with Ae 6/6 and Re 4/4 type locomotives, with curve radii of 300 m. By using Heumann's minimum process and methods evolved for analytical evaluation, it is possible to calculate in advance with sufficient accuracy the stress on the track when a locomotive is being run.
