STUDY OF THE MECHANICS OF ROLLING STOCK AT HIGH SPEEDS

STUDI SULLA MECCANICA DEL MATERIALE ROTABILE AD ALTA VELOCITA

The author gives an account of general techniques and methods followed by different Railways to increase speeds, and introduces the problem of vehicle runnning stability by emphasising the importance of carrying out studies and tests on bogies with independent wheels. Using theoretical and experimental observations and considerations, the author describes results obtained up to the present, and in conclusion lists problems which still have to be solved concerning the reduction of track and rolling stock maintenance costs.
