METHODS FOR COMPARATIVE ASSESSMENT OF HIGH-SPEED TRACKED VEHICLES

An equation is derived which takes account of the volume, weight and power balance and shows the growth laws for fast tracked vehicles. The influence of technical parameters on vehicle design can thus be presented in clearly arranged form. From this can be assessed objectives for the components and the technical latitude in the design. The model is suitable for the conversion of different designs to a common basis of comparison so as to show the purely technically-related differences. The results are described on the basis of the data for a contact-free, electro-magnetic-supported passenger vehicle with short-stator drive (EMS-KS), and are compared with the data of two rail vehicles--the DB's ET403 and the SNCF's TGV-001--and a design, the DB's RS-300.
