VIENNA ARSENAL VEHICLE TESTING STATION. ANNUAL REPORT 1971
A description of the vehicle climatic testing station at Vienna Arsenal, with details of the capacity and performance of the testing chambers and a summary of the activity of the testing station during the year 1971 are given. For passenger coaches and refrigerator vans, where standard test programmes or variations on these are used, the standard test programmes are described in detail. Details of the vehicles tested are shown and, for various important factors, comparable test results relating to the various vehicles are shown on graphs. Tests were also carried out on an electric locomotive. The effects of the wind impact on running wagons with wagon sheets or containers and the effects of adverse weather condition on data trasmission through automatic couplings and on electronic number reading units were studied. Besides the tests on railway equipment, problems varying from the icing up of a helicopter flying through clouds to the wind resistance of skiers were examined.
