SIMULATION OF LATERAL MOTION OF 2-AXLE RAILWAY VEHICLE RUNNING

This report describes the results of model experiments on creep phenomena when a wheel rolls forward on a rail, and experiments of derailment caused by climb-on-rail or by hunting of the wheel, with a 1/5 model wheelset. By these experiments, the basic mechanics of derailment can be clarified. It describes also the simulation of railway vehicle motion in case that a 2-axle railway vehicle is running on a track with irregularities. The results are compared with those obtained by test runs on the Karikachi derailment test track.
