INFLUENCE OF THE CONFIGURATION OF ALSTHOM COUPLINGS IN LOCOMOTIVE DRIVE SYSTEMS ON THE LOADS ACTING ON THE HOLLOW SHAFT AND ITS BEARINGS

A discussion is presented of Alsthom couplings which are used, among other applications, for drive systems of electric locomotives. Using equations which describe the kinematic features of the coupling, the problem of transverse dynamic loads acting on the end of the hollow shaft is studied, the forces being produced by the inertia of a single Alsthom coupling deflected from its middle position. Equations of equilibrium of elements of the coupling are established and solved in the first approximation by the perturbation method. Next, the necessary relations between the configuration of the couplings at the wheel set and the configuration of the loads acting on the ends of the hollow shaft are established and used to determine the dynamic reactions of the bearings acting on the hollow shaft. Results of this analysis make possible design conclusions concerning the configuration of the couplings.
