THE TORSIONAL STRENGTH OF BOGIE WAGONS

DER VERWINDUNGSWIDERSTAND VON DREHGESTELL-GUTERWAGON

The number of wagons with torsional rigidity and widely spaced bogie king pins is increasing. The greatest attention should be given to the constructional rigidity of wagons. The author gives comments on calculations for a tank-wagon design in which torsional strength does not endanger safety against derailment. He adopts as a basis the test results of the ORE B 55 Specialists Committee on "Prevention of derailment of goods wagons on distorted track", and on the estimated derailment of an empty 102-tonne tank wagon.
