ELASTIC CHARACTERISTICS OF TRACTION DRIVES OF TRANSPORT VEHICLES

A wide application has been found among the traction, drives of transport vehicles (rail and road vehicles) for designs in which the motor and the distributor reduction gear are fixed to a sprung vehicle frame, and the driving axles (the pairs of wheels) are connected to this gear by elastic transmission mechanisms. The presence of a reduction gear which is fixed on a vibrating base and works in connection with it as a planetary mechanism is responsible for a substantial interconnection between the torsional vibrations of the revolving masses of the drive and the angular vibrations of the vehicle frame. The selection of the elastic drive parameters is an important factor for such a design because in case of their deviation from the optimum values the drive becomes sensitive to disturbances which act on the vehicle from the direction of the track. The processes of interaction between the torsional vibrations of a drive which has a distributor reduction gear, and the angular vibrations of the vehicle were investigated in an example of a single-motor traction drive which has been adopted in the locomotive manufacture in the USSR.
