STATE-OF-THE-ART CAR DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM FINAL TEST REPORT. VOLUME 3. ACCEPTANCE TESTING

The Urban Rapid Rail Vehicle and Systems Program is an integrated development program directed toward improving high speed, frequent-stop urban rail systems. The objective of the State-of-the-Art Car (SOAC) is to demonstrate the best state-of-the-art in rapid rail car design, with two improved cars using existing proven technology. Primary goals for the cars are passenger convenience and operating efficiency. This document, Volume 3 of the SOAC Final Test Report, presents the test results for the vehicle acceptance testing of two state-of-the-art transit cars. Performance, ride quality, noise and electromagnetic interference (EMI) acceptance tests were conducted. Chapters contain a summary of test results, configuration, test equipment and instrumentation, and test procedures.
