A TEST SECTION FOR DETERMINING THE RUNNING BEHAVIOR OF WAGONS OVER MARSHALLING YARD HUMPS

OB IZMERITELNOM UCASTKE DLJA OPREDELENIJA HODOVYH SVOJSTV VAGONOR NA SORTIROVOCYH GORKAH

The article examines the problems connected with selecting the most rational length of track for tests to determine wagon running characteristics over marshalling yard humps. The highest speed for splitting up a train is reached at the shortest possible distance between the crest of the hump and the points at the head of the group of sidings, i.e. about 60 m. away. Wagons coming off the hump must be spaced out. The test section can be designed for two 4-axle wagons since the distance required between the crest of the hump and the points at the head of the set of sidings is in the vicinity of the optimal distance.
