INTERACTION BETWEEN VEHICLES AND TRACK. GEOMETRY OF THE CONTACT BETWEEN WHEELSET AND TRACK. PART I: METHODS OF MEASUREMENT AND ANALYSIS
The geometry of the contact between wheelset and track introduces the equivalent conicity concept, which is one of the important parameters intervening in the study of the riding stability of railway vehicles. After having outlined a concise theory and after having described some devices permitting the recording of wheel and rail profiles, the calculation methods and the results obtained are described.
