A comprehensive method for the elastic calculation of the two-point wheel-rail contact
(Taylor & Francis, 2006)
This work shows the method developed to solve the wheel-rail contact problem via a look-up table with a three-dimensional elastic model. This method enables introduction of the two contact point effect on vehicle movement ...
Influence of creep forces on the risk of derailment of railway vehicles
(Taylor & Francis, 2009)
The derailment mechanism in a railway vehicle is a complex mechanical phenomenon which has been, and still is, the subject of intense research activity due to the serious consequences it can entail. Since Nadal deduced his ...
Equivalent Conicity and Curve Radius Influence on Dynamical Performance of Unconventional Bogies. Comparison Analysis
(Taylor and Francis, 2004)
In this paper the dynamic behaviour of several unconventional bogies is compared. The study takes into account the radius of the curve and the maximum level of wear allowed to the wheels. Ranges of conicities and curve ...
