INFLUENCE OF LOCOMOTIVE ADHESION COEFFICIENTS ON THE THROUGHPUT CAPACITY AND FREIGHT TRAFFIC FLOW ON A TRACK SECTION

VLIJANIE RASCETNOGO KOEFFICIENTA SCEPLENIJA LOKOMOTIVA NA PROVOZNUJU SPOSOBNOST' UCASTKA

The author examines the various problems related to these two factors. He concludes that the locomotive adhesion coefficient must be fixed only after a thorough examination of the problems of determining the weight and speed of freight trains and taking account of the effect of a change in adhesion on line operating conditions. Depending on operation conditions and regulations, the criterion for selecting the adhesion coefficient on a section of track could be that of allowing for the highest possible volume of traffic, or making the best use of locomotives, or yet again, aiming for minimum expenditure for rolling stock and other financial aspects.
