THEORTICAL AND EXPERIMENTAL INVESTIGATIONS OF VEHICLE MOVEMENT AT 200 KM/H AND REQUIREMENTS FOR TRACK MAINTENANCE ON HIGH-SPEED LINES

With an increase in speed to 200 km/h, the interaction forces between the track and rolling stock greatly increase, especially forces in the lateral direction. To assess these forces, trial runs were carried out on the Moscow-Leningrad Line with the C3 200 locomotive and ER 200 multiple-unit trains at speeds up to 200 km/h. Based on theoretical and experimental investigations, this article contains a table of recommended maintenance tolerances for the rail gauge on sections with speeds up to 200 km/h.
