TRUCK DESIGN OPTIMIZATION PROJECT FIELD TEST DATA, SERIES 1, TAPE TDOP 0025

The 2 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-Half Load* Wheel Profile-New 1 in 20* Spring Group 7-05O; 6-05I* Snubbing-8-3091* Snubber Augmentation-None* Centerplate Friction-Steel Moly* Additional Experimental Devices or Conditions-None except vertical adaptor calibration should be on basis of 17.8K* 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-010302TSM001* Track-Med Spd Jtd* Speed-15 to 45 in 5 mph steps* Outer Gib Clearance-5/8 In.* Side Bearings-3/8 In. clear.* Additional Experimental Conditions-None* Errors noted-Ch 13 has pos. Noise, ch 28 off 0 ***FILE 2: Name-010302TSR001* Track-Med Spd Jtd.* Speed-20 to 28 in 2 mph steps* Outer Gib Clearance-5/8 In.* Side Bearings-3/8 In. Clear.* Additional Experimental Conditions-None* Errors noted-None.
