SPECIFICATION AND DESIGN OF BRAKING SYSTEMS

The paper defines the factors influencing decisions in specifying and designing braking systems. It discusses experience gained from existing systems, including an analysis of these systems; various factors related to the local environment and conditions; and various aspects of detailed component design. Two examples are described: a "green field" design; and a design for general purpose use in an established railway system of varied nature, with allowance for future change.
