DEVELOPMENT OF TECHNIQUES AND DATA FOR EVALUATING RIDE QUALITY. VOLUME II. RIDE-QUALITY RESEARCH

Ride-quality models for city buses and intercity trains are presented and discussed in terms of their ability to predict passenger comfort and ride acceptability. This, the second of three volumes, contains a technical discussion of the ride-quality models developed during the research effort using the data gathered on city buses and intercity trains. The methods and procedures employed to derive the models are also presented, together with examples of how models are used to evaluate the ride quality of existing and future transportation systems. The raw data used as a basis for the models are presented in the appendixes to this volume.
