VERTICAL ACTION OF FORCES BETWEEN WHEEL AND RAIL WHEN CROSSING A RAIL JOINT

An example serves to determine the maximum dynamic vertical wheel force when a modern coach crosses a rail joint. The problem is described mathematically by a system of ordinary differential equations and is solved by means of an analog computer. The high dynamic vertical wheel forces obtained linearly increase with the travelling speed. As a result, the demand of more elastic wheels is made for railway vehicles travelling at high speed, besides that of a high quality of the permanent way.
