MECHANICS OF TRANSPORTATION SYSTEMS

This is a continuation of the work of the Applied Mechanics Division of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers on dissemination of information on application of mechanics in transportation. In no aspect of transportation technology does applied mechanics play a more decisive role than in suspension system design. The papers in this volume are: (1) Classifying Track by Power Spectral Density by Corbin and Kaufman, (2) Active Suspensions for Ground Transport Vehicles, A State of the Art Review by Hedrick and Wormley, (3) The Tire as a Vehicle Component by Segel, (4) Development of Advanced Suspension Systems for High Speed Railcars-The Metroliner, A Case Study. Part I-Dynamic Performance Requirements by Strong and Herring, Part II- Prototype Development and Testing by Dean.
