Stress and vibrational analysis of an Indian Railway RCF bogie

In the present work, static and dynamic finite element analyses are carried out on an Indian railway 6 ton RCF sleeper bogie. The geometrical CAD model of railway vehicle has been developed in UG-NX7.5 and has been exported to ANSYS12.1 package where finite element modelling and the required static and dynamic analyses have been performed. For dynamic response, modal, harmonic and transient dynamic analyses are carried out. First few natural modes of vibration of the bogie are extracted in Eigen frequency analysis and it is observed that the roll mode attained at a frequency which is well matched with the fundamental natural frequency calculated analytically. The harmonic peaks obtained are matching well with the natural frequencies obtained in modal analysis. Response to the ground excitation when the bogie passes over a bump is simulated in transient analysis.
