TRUCK DESIGN OPTIMIZATION PROJECT FIELD TEST DATA, SERIES 2, TAPE TDOP 0052

The 3 data files on this magnetic tape include acceleration, force, and displacement measurements at critical points on a freight car and truck. Each file includes detailed alphanumeric descriptions of test conditions. The following are for all tests on this tape: Car-70 Ton M. Reefer* Truck-ASF Ride Control* Truck Center-45 Ft. 9 In.* Wheel Profile-Worn* Spring Group 7-05 O; 6-05 I* Snubbing-8-3091* Snubber Augmentation-None* Centerplate Friction-Steel-Moly* Additional Experimental Devices or Conditions-None* NOTE: Vertical adapter forces are subject to question. Those on sharper curves or empty cars at high speed are least accurate. Individual variations of the different tests are as follows: FILE 1: Name-020203CNO001* Track-Curved* Speed-35 mph* Load-None* Outer Gib Clearance-5/8 In.* Side Bearings-3/8 In.Clear.* Additional Experimental Conditions-None* Errors noted-ch. 48 Bad; ch. 24 No Neg.; ch. 41 questionable ***FILE 2: Name-020303CNE001* Track-Curved* Speed-25 mph* Load-Full* Outer Gib Clearance-5/8 In.* Side Bearings-3/8 In.Clear.* Additional Experimental Conditions-None* Errors noted-ch. 14 Bad; ch. 47 was 0.5v off 0 ***FILE 3: Name-020303CNO001* Track-Curved* Speed-35 mph* Load-Full* Outer Gib Clearance-5/8 In.* Side Bearings-3/8 In.Clear.* Additional Experimental Conditions-None* Errors noted-ch. 41 questionable.
