EVALUATION OF RAILWAY CONTACT THEORY BY EXPERIMENTS

The paper concerns an evaluation of a widely used mathematical model for the description of the wheel-rail forces in the equations of motion of a railway vehicle. By using the measured responses of a bogie on a normal track, actual values for the creep coefficients and the geometrical contact parameters will be determined. Interesting results have been obtained for the influence of the gravitational stiffness.
