OPTIMUM NONLINEAR SUSPENSION FOR RAILROAD FREIGHT VEHICLES

In this paper the multivariable optimization technique is employed to find the optimum suspension parameters of a nonlinear model of the railroad freight vehicle. The optimum suspension elements are determined with an objective to minimize the maximum transient response of the freight car rocking angle in the critical frequency range when undergoing periodic excitation from the rails.
