Comparison of the curve negotiation properties of two different articulated monorail vehicles

This paper introduces two types of articulated monorails. The vehicle model of the traditional monorail is set up first, and a genetic algorithm is used to modify the parameters with the experimental data. Then, the two types of articulated monorail vehicle models are set up with the components and parameters of the model of the traditional monorail. By comparing the dynamic properties of the traditional monorail with the two types of articulated monorails, the advantage of the latter is realized. Finally, it has been concluded that the “non-bolster type” structure will be a better choice for vehicles passing a small radius curve. This analysis can be helpful in selecting the appropriate monorail system for particular conditions.
