COLLISIONS BETWEEN WAGONS

The purpose of the study is to examine the phenomena which occur in a marshalling yard when one or more wagons collide at low speed, less than 20 km/h, with one or more stationary wagons. Various cases are examined on the basis of general equations. In the first instance, the effect of the numbers of wagons stationary and run forward is brought out.
