THE PRESENT STATE OF THE ART OF THE WHEELSET AXLE METHOD FOR DETERMINATION OF FORCES BETWEEN WHEEL AND RAIL

Five years ago, the wheelset axle method was published. In the meantime, this method of determining the forces acting between the wheel and rail has been employed in numerous tests for investigation of the riding qualities. To enable a more reliable and simpler application of this method, the various components had to be improved. This paper describes the typical parameters of this method of measurement and discusses their effects on the accuracy of the force measurements, indicating also how these effects can be eliminated or reduced. In addition, the new method of calibration is described and possibilities for adopting this method for the solution of further problems encountered in the field of force measurements are discussed.
