FORECASTING PROBABILITY IN THE REALISATION OF WEIGHTS OF FREIGHT TRAINS BY DIGITAL COMPUTERS

According to the author, the adhesion force of the locomotive and resistance to train movement are independent random values dispersed according to normal laws. On this basis, he provides formulae forecasting the probability of hauling train weights without wheel slipping, with loads below or above the standard train weights, according to average values and scatter values of adhesion and resistance forces. He then discusses: the influence of the value of these statistical parameters on forecasting probability for realising train weights, and the difficulty in forecasting because of the necessity to take into account the parameters of "under service conditions".
