PROCEEDINGS OF CONFERENCE ON TRACK/TRAIN DYNAMICS INTERACTION. VOLUME 1

The problems caused by track/train dynamics manifest themselves in a variety of ways. Regardless of how, the manifestations are extremely costly to the industry and must be solved. To provide interim solutions and to clarify those areas that should receive the greatest attention in the research effort on track/train dynamics, the AAR sponsored a conference on the subject. This is the first of two volumes. Subjects covered in this volume include: Interaction Mechanics; Train Operations and Control; Analytical and Experimental Techniques; Performance of Freight Car Component Systems.
