DYNAMIC ANALYSIS OF MULTIPLE CAR VEHICLES USING COMPONENT MODES. VOLUME II. PARAMETRIC STUDY
The report documents the results of a parametric study made to assess the effects of inter-car coupling on the dynamic characteristics of high speed trains. In addition to shedding light on potential problems which may arise from the dynamic coupling of vehicle modes, the report includes a summary of the experience gained in application of the computer program developed for this purpose.
