THE LIMITATIONS OF THE BRAKING POWER OF COMBINED BRAKE SYSTEMS

LEISTUNGSGRENZEN KOMBINIERTER BREMSSYSTEME

The author explains the brake systems of high speed trains and describes braking to a stop in detail. He then discusses the limitations of the braking power of brakes and explains the problem of the coefficient of adhesion, as well as suitable combinations of brakes. Providing that each bogie is loaded at 12 tonnes per axle, various combined brake systems can be used for speeds of up to 350 km/h. Electromagnetic eddy-current brakes are very important for braking over short distances.
