NEW GUIDE SYSTEM FOR A WHEEL-RAIL VEHICLE
One of the main factors determining the upper limit of the conventional railway vehicle is the truck hunting that inevitably becomes unstable at high speed. Though cylindrical and/or independently-rotating wheels can remove this problem, the vehicle equipped with them needs some guide mechanisms. In this paper, the author discusses the fundamental characteristics concerning the stability of motion of the guided cylindrical-and-independently-rotating-wheel truck.
