FUTURE DEVELOPMENT OF THE RUNNING TECHNIQUES OF NEW DB DIESEL UNITS USING THE TORSION FRAME BOGIE

DIE WEITERENTWICKLUNG DER LAUFTECHNIK NEUER BRENNKRAFTTRIEBWAGEN DER DEUTSCHEN BUNDESBAHN DURCH TORSIONSRAHMENDREHGESTELLE

The new torsion frame bogie improves running quality for a wide range of speeds by affecting the vibration frequency and the reaction forces exerted on the rail. Stable running is obtained up to speeds of over 140 km/h despite low wheel loads and relatively short wheel bases. Measurements carried out as regards wear suggest that distances of over 600,000 km could be covered before the wheels need reprofiling.
