Interaction of Elastic Wheelsets and Elastic Rails: Modelling and Simulation

The model of a railway vehicle running on a straight track is presented, in which the wheelsets and the rails are modelled as elastic bodies. The influence of the structural elasticities of the wheelsets and the rails on the running behaviour, especially the hunting motion of the vehicle, is investigated.
