An analysis is given of existing designs and trends in the modern design of freight car trucks. Criteria are formulated for making engineering estimates of the running gear of cars. The results are given of studies of the dynamics of freight cars for the purpose of improving their running and operating properties for increased speeds. Recommendations are given on the selection of key parameters for two-axle freight car trucks. The material presented in this monograph will be useful in solving problems in improving the design of modernizing running gear of existing cars, taking into account long-term usage conditions. The technical papers included in this document are: (1) Criteria for estimating Dynamic Properties and Performance of Freight Car Trucks; (2) Dynamic Properties and Performance of the TsNII-Kh3-0 Trucks and Improving the Design of Four-Wheel Trucks; (3) Theoretical Studies of the Dynamics of Freight Cars and Selection of Key Parameters of Running Gear; (4) Selection of Spring Suspension Parameters for the Purpose of Reducing the Rate of Lateral Oscillations of Cars.
