This study is a further extension of the Harmonic Roll Series case studies reported on by Track Train Dynamics, Phase I, in Volumes I to IV (R-172, R-173, R-174, and R-184). It is the second part of an extensive parametric study conducted during Track Train Dynamics, Phase II. The first part was reported as Volume I Suspension Dynamics (R-224). The purpose is to aid car and truck designers by showing the effects on roll and bounce performance of changes in various parameters of the car truck system. Computer simulation for a complex parameter study provides an efficient and safe method for identifying performance trends.
