STATE-OF-THE-ART CAR DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM FINAL TEST REPORT. VOLUME 5. POST REPAIR 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 presents the test results for the Post-Repair Testing of the SOAC. The purpose of these tests was to show: (1) compliance with the SOAC Detail Specification (NTIS no. PB-222 147) following repairs to the Number 2 car damaged in an accident on August 11, 1973 at the DOT High Speed Ground Test Center, Pueblo, Colorado; and (2) to complete the Simulated Demonstration Testing (Volume 4) which had been interrupted by the accident. Chapters present configuration, instrumentation, test procedures, test results and conclusions.
