RUNNING STABILITY AND RAILWAY VEHICLE TRANSFER FUNCTIONS, SOLVED BY THE METHOD OF STATISTICAL LINEARIZATION

This paper deals with the transfer function of the lateral vibration of a railway vehicle with two bogies, where the lateral displacement of the wheel-set across the rail is taken into consideration. For the forces acting between the wheel and the rail J. J. Kalker's relations were applied. Since the problem is nonlinear due to the geometric relations in the wheel-rail contact, the method of statistical linearization was used. This method is advisable for random excitation of the vehicle, when the excitation is given by lateral deviation of the rail. The results of the classically linearized system and conclusions were drawn as to the applicability of both methods.
