Estimation of ambient temperature impact on vertical dynamic behaviour of passenger rail vehicle with damaged wheels

Maintenance and repair specialists of rolling stock face the problem related to accurate and reliable assessment of the vibrations of the car body of passenger rail vehicle, caused by wheel damage, and its impact on passengers. Another important aspect is to deter-mine the permissible speed at which the passenger car with wheel damage could move to the nearest station or depot without badly damaging the rails. The purpose of this research is to examine the dynamic processes of the interaction of the passenger car chassis with the railway track using a newly developed mathematical models called the “Passenger Car - Track” system. During the simulation, the dynamic characteristics of the track, bogies and car body in different season temperature were estimated. The validation of theoretical results was obtained based on the field tests of the test train as well as the results of measurements of changes in track stiffness temperatures. Finally, conclusions and suggestions are presented.
