COMPUTATIONAL METHODS FOR THE PREDICTION OF TRUCK PERFORMANCE IN CURVES

Characteristics of guidance forces and vehicle parameters for models of curving performance are examined. Methods for computing forces and response of rail vehicles on curves are surveyed. The advantages and limitations of each techniques are discussed and computational procedures appropriate to entry and steady curving are indicated.
