TRANSIENT ROLL MOTIONS OF A VEHICLE FOLLOWING A PRESCRIBED HORIZONTAL ALIGNMENT

A simple, one-degree-of-freedom model to describe the effect of transition curve design parameters on the transient roll motions experienced in the sprung mass of a road or rail car is developed. Analytical expressions for the roll response to a number of roadway inputs are obtained, and quantified for several representative cases. /Author/ /TRRL/
