SOAC: STATE-OF-THE-ART CAR ENGINEERING TESTS AT DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION HIGH SPEED GROUND TEST CENTER. VOLUME VII. POST-REPAIR TESTS
The document presents the test results for the State-of-the-Art Car Post-Repair Engineering Test Program conducted at the DOT High-Speed Ground Test Center, Pueblo, Colorado, from March 18th to 29th, 1974. The SOAC has been developed under UMTA's Urban Rapid Rail Vehicle and Systems Program to enhance the attractiveness of rapid rail transportation to the urban traveller. The test data continuity between the original HSGTC Engineering Tests and the Post-Repair Test was established. Test data of variations from the original data have not been significant in terms of overall vehicle performance. A description of test procedures, equipment and facilities was provided in the original six-volume report, UMTA-MA-06-0025-75-1 through -6. PB-244 746 is the complete six volume set; PB-244 747 through PB-244 752 are the NTiS document numbers for each volume, I through VI respectively.
