COMPUTER STUDY OF DYNAMIC LOADS CAUSED BY VEHICLE-TRACK INTERACTION

Computer analyses of vehicle and track described produce results regarding actual dynamic loads and manner in which various parameters of vehicle and track structure affect these loads; it is possible to decide how to alleviate high wheel-rail stresses caused by modern traffic and track conditions; possible solutions range from better track maintenance to different wheel-rail geometries to changes in stiffness and damping of trucks and track structure.
