EFFECT OF WAGON-BOGIE SUSPENSION CHARACTERISTICS ON DYNAMIC LOADS

Recent British Railways tests show total forces induced by track joints, frogs and crossings are influenced by the square root of unsprung mass as well as other criteria. Sprung and unsprung mass accelerations call for careful damping. Load deflection characteristics examined show the need for closer scrutiny and suspensions must be designed to give satisfactory ride in normal speed ranges. Ride index and rotational resistance are important.
