PROPOSED NATIONAL RESEARCH PROGRAM ON TRACK-TRAIN DYNAMICS
A study by Southern Pacific showed the need for a study utilizing advanced technology for a systems approach to the total matter of interaction of current-day trains and the track with the objectives of improving railroad transportation reliability, safety and efficiency. This report details the plans for a National Research Program on Track-Train Dynamics with the objective of developing a better understanding of the dynamic relationships between the moving train and fixed quideway on which it operates. This is the final report indicating the three general phases and a detailed plan for Phase I indicating manpower requirements, resources and costs. The Appendices appear in a separate volume.
- This study was prepared for the Association of American Railroads. Requests for this publication should be directed to J.G. Britton, Director of Operations, AAR. This is a 2 volume set.
