TRUCK DESIGN OPTIMIZATION PROJECT FIELD TEST DATA, SERIES 3, TAPE TDOP 0106

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-89 ft. Flat Car* Truck-ASF Low Level* Truck Center-64 Ft. 0 In.* Load-Full* Wheel Profile-New 1 in 20* Spring Group 5-D4O; 5-D3I* Snubbing-8-3221; 8-3222* 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-030502TEM002* Track-Hi.Spd.CWR* Speed-30 to 60 in 10 mph steps* Outer Gib Clearance-5/8 In.* Side Bearings-1/4 In. Clear.* Additional Experimental Conditions-None* Errors noted-None ***FILE 2: Name-030502TEH001* Track-Hi.Spd.CWR* Speed-70 and 79 mph* Outer Gib Clearance-5/8 In.* Side Bearings-1/4 In. Clear.* Additional Experimental Conditions-None* Errors noted-None ***FILE 3: Name-030502TSM002* Track-Med.Spd.Jtd.* Speed-15 to 45 in 5 mph steps* Outer Gib Clearance-5/8 In.* Side Bearings-1/4 In. Clear.* Additional Experimental Conditions-None* Errors noted-None.
