NEW PRINCIPLES IN BOGIE-BODY CONNECTIONS. TWO PROTOTYPE BOGIES DESIGNED BY THE S.N.C.F.
Until recently the problem of the comfort of railway coaches was settled empirically. It was not till 1952 that a start was made with experimental research into the conditions determining comfort in a railway vehicle. There was a problem in connection with the link between bogie and body as far as railway vehicle comfort was concerned. It appeared that the choice of the solutions made by trial and error was not the best. The problem of comfort has two aspects: transversal comfort; and vertical comfort. Two bogies have been designed on the same theoretical bases: Suspension rods of the body in relation to the bogie 0.500 m long, inclined 1/10 towards the interior. Transversal play of the body in relation to the bogie plus or minus 65 mm. Complete freedom of rotation of the bogie in relation to the body.
