KTH, Superseded Departments, Aeronautical and Vehicle Engineering.
2002 (English)Report (Other academic)
Abstract [en]

This review covers firstly the development of the three running gear standardized by the UIC and the conventional three-piece bogie. The different suspension systems are described and their advantages and disadvantages are discussed. Five improved three-piece bogies and twelve recently developed running gear are also presented.

An overview of the guiding mechanisms for a wheelset is made. The running gear in this study are grouped into three categories according to their primary suspension and principle for wheelset guidance:

Stiff wheelset guidance.

Soft wheelset guidance.

Soft wheelset guidance with inter-axle linkage.

and in case of bogie running gear in two categories according to the frame design:

Horizontally stiff frame.

Horizontally lozenging frame.

Advantages and disadvantages, as far as known, with the different principles are discussed.
