This paper addresses the experimental study on the nonlinear critical speed and the validity of simple prediction formulation. The experiment on nonlinear critical speed is carried out using roller rigs, which has been impossible on track because of a possibility of an accident. In addition, experiment for a bogie is performed to check the difference in modeling a full railway vehicle and a bogie. It is found that nonlinear critical speed proves to be an inherent phenomenon of a railway vehicle itself and the difference of test results between a full railway vehicle and a bogie is comparatively negligible. Finally. the accuracy of simple prediction formulation for outbreak velocity and response frequency in hunting is investigated.
