INVESTIGATING THE CURVE-RUNNING BEHAVIOUR OF HEAVY ORE-RAILWAY LOCOMOTIVES

The article compares the running gear of heavy diesel-electric ore-railway locomotives as investigated on the basis of Heumann's minimum method. The following parameters were varied: wheelset arrangement (C'C', B'B'B', B'B'B'B', D'D'), bogie wheel centres, wheelset load and distance between bogie pivots. Locomotives with and without bogie transverse coupling are compared. The necessary combinations for the traction power of the given trains are taken from those locomotives which proved best in the investigations into the various wheelset arrangements. Reference is also made to the great differences in the anticipated track loadings.
