INTERACTION BETWEEN VEHICLES AND TRACK. EQUATIONS OF MOTION OF A RAILWAY VEHICLE
The equations of motion of a railway vehicle are derived using Newtonian methods of summing all the forces acting on each mass element. As an understanding of the dynamics of a wheelset is fundamental to the study of a complete vehicle, the equations of motion of a wheelset are derived first, followed by the equations of motion of three example vehicles.
