Dynamics of Railway Vehicles


System Dynamics and Stability of Radialelastic Wheels

Project Description

The project involves the investigation on the system dynamics of railway wheelsets with elastically suspended wheel rims which can be realized, e.g., by air suspension. The goal of the project is not only the investigation of the resulting medium frequency behavior of the railway coach but also the definition of suitable stiffness and damping parameters for the elastic suspension of the wheel rims. This requires the design of a flexible multibody model of the railway coach including wheelsets, bogie frames and the car body.
