The paper, "Vibrational Aspects of Bogie Design", by J.L. Koffman of British Railways, describes the five fundamental modes of vehicle body vibration of particular interest to bogie designers. These are: lateral oscillations; rolling and swaying oscillations; body nosing; fore and aft oscillations; and vertical oscillations. Each of these principles are briefly described and are related to production coach and locomotive bogies to illustrate how observance of these principles result in satisfactory performance.
