INFLUENCE OF THE TRANSVERSE PLAY OF THE SUSPENSION SYSTEM ON THE RIDING OF 2-AXLED WAGONS FIELD TESTS ON 2-AXLED GOODS WAGONS FITTED WITH HYBRID SUSPENSION AND UIC DOUBLE-LINK SUSPENSION
A comparison was made between a hybrid suspension and a conventional UIC double-link suspension, both installed in Gbs wagons. Both wagons had free transverse play of about 20 mm and were fitted with 14 mm thick UIC axle guards. The influence of the suspension on the riding of the wagons was studied on a tangent track (track gauges between 1432 and 1441 mm) and in curves of 300, 400 and 685 m radius. The results of the tests have shown that the hybrid suspension adversely affects the riding qualities of wagons.
