MUNICH-FREIMANN RUNNING TEST BENCH

IL BANCO DI PROVA A ROTOLAMENTO DI MONACO FREIMANN

The trend towards the increase in the running speeds of guided means of transport has brought about the necessity for the construction of special installations in order to carry out practical tests to integrate the theoretical studies which are being parallelly developed. These installations are basically of two types: experimental tracks for non conventional means (magnetic or air-cushion suspension, propulsion mostly by linear induction motor) and railway test loops. The last-named offer the possibility of carrying out the tests independently from operation and with a considerable saving of time and expense, but do not make it possible to completely eliminate the influence of external elements or freely vary the individual parameters which affect the results of the tests. For this reason, there arose the running test benches, that is to say installations in which the track is simulated by pairs of rollers, suitably powered and braked, and having various degrees of freedom, on which the stock to be tested is placed. The most recent of these is that being completed at Munich-Freimann, of which a detailed description is given.
