STABILITY OF MOTION OF RAIL VEHICLES

The stability of undistributed motion of track vehicles (locomotives and cars) is considered mainly according to the first (linear) approximation. In order to widen the region of applicability of the first approximation, the right sides of the equations of disturbed motion are replaced by their best linear approximation according to Chelyshev. Methods of selection of a structure and values of the parameters of the mechanical system that would result in the undisturbed motion being stable within a set range of velocities are pointed out. A design method of simplification of the systems of nonlinear differential equations by eliminating rapidly attenuating solutions is presented. Results of natural-size experiments carried out with a fast laboratory car to check the theory are described.
