DYNALIST II. A COMPUTER PROGRAM FOR STABILITY AND DYNAMIC RESPONSE ANALYSIS OF RAIL VEHICLE SYSTEMS. VOLUME III. TECHNICAL REPORT ADDENDUM

Several new capabilities have been added to the DYNALIST II computer program. These include: (1) a component matrix generator that operates as a 3-D finite element modeling program where elements consist of rigid bodies, flexural bodies, wheelsets, suspension elements and point masses assembled on a nodal skeleton; (2) a periodic and transient time-history response capability; (3) a component update capability for parametric studies; (4) an orthogonality check on component and system complex eigenvectors; (5) an option for improving low-frequency convergence under modal truncation; (6) a more general sine-amplitude forcing function capability; (7) automatic phase lag generation; (8) user-controlled scaling options on all response plots; and a number of additional minor improvements. A Technical Report Addendum and a completely revised User's Manual document these changes to the previous version of DYNALIST II.
