IMPROVING RIDING OF PASSENGER VEHICLES

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.
