INCLINING BODY TECHNIQUE IN RAILWAY VEHICLES RUNNING IN CURVES

LA TECHNICA DE LA INCLINACION DE LAS CAJAS DE LOS VEHICULOS FERROVIARIOS A SU PASO POR CURVAS

This paper, which won the first prize in Section B at the Caracas Congress, contains a brief description of procedures adopted by several Railways (in the United States, France, Japan, Sweden, England, Switzerland, Italy and Canada) on the subject of inclining vehicle bodies for running in curves, (a solution they consider as an optimum to reach the proposed objective). It then describes in great detail the constructional characteristics and operating principles of the solution adopted by the RENFE (electric train-set with inclinable bodies). A chapter at the end is devoted to details of expected results.
