COMPARATIVE STUDY OF LOCOMOTIVE LATERAL STABILITY MODELS

In this paper a comparative study is made between present investigation of the 39 degree-of-freedom mathematical model and other simplified models. The results of the study of a typical six-axle locomotive obtained from the 39 DOF model are presented. The lateral stability is appraised, and the model includes the coupling between vertical and lateral motions. The merits and demerits of various models are discussed. A bibliography is included.
