The rocking motion of gondola cars in the 125-ton capacity range is investigated, and the solution is obtained by use of a simulation program on a digital computer. Predictions of maximum roll angle and maximum dynamic wheel load are made. Computed results are in substantial agreement with data observed in field tests.
