NEW PASSENGER CAR BOGIES: SELECTION METHOD AND PERFORMANCE OF BOGIE MD. 52

To select the most suitable type of bogie for a new generation of passenger cars of Deutsche Bundesbahn (DB) from a number of proven and newly developed types, the cost effective analysis was applied. The manufacturing cost was determined by inviting quotations; the maintenance costs were determined by way of sample decomposition and time assessment. Nonmonetary parameters (running properties, construction and performance) were weighted and then subjected to a sensitivity analysis. Bogie MD 52 was established to be the optimum solution. The paper briefly reports on the running properties and the Y-forces of this bogie. In spite of the large number of lines with many curves in DB's IC network, it has been possible to minimise tyre wear, resulting in lengthening of the inspection interval to 650,000km plus or minus 10%, with 1 million km appearing feasible in steps.
