DESIGN SYSTEM APPROACH TO PROBLEM SOLVING

A systems approach to improved truck design has involved mathematical modeling and then field testing of arrangements for modification of existing trucks and for a completely redesigned radial truck. Railway Engineering Associates has worked with Canadian National Railways and with Dresser Industries in various phases of this self-steering truck. The economics of this method of controlling the tracking characteristics of the basic three-piece truck must still be worked out.
