SDP-40F LOCOMOTIVE TESTS ON THE BURLINGTON NORTHERN RAILROAD

This report describes the results of SDP-40F locomotive tests, conducted on the Burlington Northern Railroad. The test data was analyzed to characterize the locomotive's wheel-rail forces, as related to variations in track geometry and operating procedures. An analysis was also made to determine and quantify those factors which have the greatest influence upon the observed wheel-rail forces.
