Secondary suspension of railway vehicles - air spring modelling: Performance and critical issues
2014 (English)In: Proceedings of the Institution of mechanical engineers. Part F, journal of rail and rapid transit, ISSN 0954-4097, Vol. 228, no 3, 225-241 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
This paper shows the importance of modelling the components of the suspension when performing dynamics simulations of a railway vehicle. Focusing on the air spring secondary suspension, a process to define an accurate component model is proposed based on a combination of laboratory tests and model identification techniques. Six models for the air spring secondary suspension are discussed and assessed based on comparison with experiments.
