IMPROVED SIGNAL CONDITIONING METHODS FOR MEASURING THE VERTICAL FORCES AT THE WHEEL/RAIL INTERFACE

Continuous recording of the vertical forces arising at the wheel/rail interface has been desirable already for some time. To do this, the output signals of two vertical force measuring bridges displaced at an angle of 45 degrees are combined by electronic means to form a continuous signal with a residual ripple of less than plus or minus 5% of the rated wheel force. The measuring device was developed for the Series Rc 4 wheel centres of Swedish State Railways (SJ). It has proved successful both in laboratory tests and during trial runs conducted in Sweden and USA.
