SYMPOSIUM ON RAILROAD EQUIPMENT DYNAMICS
Railroad equipment dynamics is undergoing comprehensive study by the railroad industry, its supporting suppliers and the Federal Government. An understanding is emerging of the forcing influences involved in the dynamic environment. Theoretical analyses, including mathematical models, are being created to extend an understanding of the dynamic systems involved and to serve as tools for improving on the design of railroad equipment and structures involved in this environment. This Symposium Volume contains papers involving dynamic analysis, testing of the dynamic environment, results of freight car performance operating in the dynamic environment and a power system design related to improving the operational performance of a railroad passenger car.
