PERMISSIBLE LIMIT VALUES FOR THE Y AND Q FORCES AND DERAILMENT CRITERIA. EFFECT OF THE SPACING OF CONSECUTIVE AXLES ON THE MAXIMUM PERMISSIBLE VALUE OF LATERAL LOAD FROM THE POINT OF VIEW OF TRACK DISPLACEMENT. SECOND PART. TESTS ON BOGIE WAGONS
The present report describes the results obtained with the two bogie vehicles successively: a summary of the programme of tests and results obtained with the two-axled wagon; a description of the test installation; the characteristics of the bogie vehicles; the conditions for the execution of the tests and the results obtained; and a comparative analysis of the results contained for the 3 types of vehicle. These results show in particular that for closely spaced axles the value S sub lim related to the axle exposed to the highest lateral load in absolute numbers, varies with the ratio between the loads applied to 2 consecutive wheelsets, the minimum being reached when these 2 loads are equal. This minimum does not significantly differ from the value S sub lim determined for the case of the single wheelset, for which it is close to (10 + p over 3) kN (P = axle-load) for the track conditions retained for the tests.
