The design and performance of the European freight wagon standard suspensions
2005 (English)In: Am Soc Mech Eng Rail Transp Div Publ RTD, 2005, 9-18 p.Conference paper (Refereed)
In the paper we present the three most common European standard freight wagon suspensions. It is characteristic for the European suspensions that they are all primary suspensions without a bolster. The design and the function of their single elements are described. New results on the nature of dry friction and its influence on the damping characteristics are presented. Finally a few theoretical investigations of the dynamics of European freight wagons are surveyed with emphasis on the calculations of the critical speed. The results are compared with corresponding results for American wagons.
