THEORETICAL STUDY ON THE SIDE THRUST OF TRUCK WHEELS RUNNING ON CURVES

Many studies on the mechanics of side thrust of truck wheels running on curves have been carried out. Most of them aim at the analysis of the static behaviour of vehicles on curves. The analysis in this paper purports to present the fundamental principles for the design of the truck with a small side thrust of wheel against the curved rail. The influences of the wheelset suspension stiffness and many other factors upon the flange force of outer leading wheel are made clear.
