ISSLEDOVANIYE NADEZHNOSTI GRUZOVYKH VAGONOV I PUTI POVYSHENIYA IKH RABOTOSPOSOBNOSTI

Presented are the results of theoretical and experimental research on the effect of operating conditions on the efficiency and technical condition of freight cars. Described are the methods and results of research into the reliability and technical condition of freight cars under general-purpose operating conditions. Provided are recommendations for further improving the system of routine maintenance and preparation of cars for shipments on an industrial basis. Presented is the methodology for evaluation of the capability for increasing the car in service time without having to stop for inspection and repair, as well as determination of the optimal length of a nonstop movement sector. The book is intended for engineering-technical and scientific workers in railway transportation who are involved with freight car operations and repair. The technical papers included in this document are: (1) Analysis of the Technical Condition and Routine Maintenance of Freight Cars; (2) Research on the Effect of Operating Conditions on Freight Car Efficiency; (3) Research into the Reliability and Technical Condition of Freight Cars; (4) Improving the System of Routine Maintenance and Preparation of Cars for Shipments; (5) Research into the Dependence of the Failure-Free Operation of Cars in Trains on the Level of Restoration of their Efficiency at the PTO (Inspection Point); (6) Substantiation of the Capability of Increasing the Operational Duration of Cars in Trains.
