TRUCK DESIGN OPTIMIZATION PROJECT FIELD TEST DATA, SERIES 1, TAPE TDOP 0016

The 3 data files on this magnetic tape include acceleration, force, and displacement measurements at critical points on a freight car and truck. Each file includes detailed alphanumeric descriptions of test conditions. The following are for all tests on this tape: Car=70 Ton M Reefer* Truck-ASF ride control* Truck center-45 Ft. 9 In.* Load-Full* Wheel Profile-New 1 in 20* Spring Group 7-D5 O; 6-D5 I* Snubbing-8-3091* Snubber Augmentation-None* Centerplate Friction-Steel-Moly* Additional Experimental Devices or Conditons-None* NOTE: Vertical adapter forces are subject to question. Those on sharper curves or empty cars at high speed are least accurate. Individual variations of the different tests are as follows: FILE 1: Name-010102TWA001* Track-Hi. Spd. Jtd* Speed-30 to 79 in 10 mph steps* Outer Gib Clearance-5/8 In.* Side Bearings-1/8 In. clear.* Additional Experimental Conditions-None* Errors noted-Noise on ch 1, ch 28 off 0***FILE 2: Name-010102TEM001* Track-Hi. Spd. CWR* Speed-30 to 60 in 10 mph steps* Outer Gib Clearance-5/8 In.* Side Bearings-1/8 In. clear.* Additional Experimental Conditions-None* Errors noted-Noise on ch 1***FILE 3: Name-010102TEN001* Track-Hi. Spd. CWR* Speed-70 and 79 mph* Outer Gib Clearance-5/8 In.* Side Bearings-1/8 In. clear.* Additional Experimental Conditions-None* Errors noted-Incomplete - Test aborted.
