LITERATURE SURVEY OF RAILWAY VEHICLE DYNAMICS RESEARCH

A survey of the research concerned with the dynamics of single, conventional railway vehicles is presented. Attention is concentrated on analytical research and experimental research performed in conjunction with analytical efforts. The often conflicting objectives for railway vehicle suspension design and the research done to understand the design implications of these objectives are discussed.
