Parametric Study of a Bogie Tilting Mechanism

대차 틸팅 기구의 매개변수 분석 연구

  • Published : 2003.12.01


Using a conventional railway, a tilting train was applied as a means of improving vehicle speed during curve negotiation without any modification of infrastructure. As a study for the optimum design of the tilting mechanism of a tilting vehicle, the kinematics sensitivity of the tilting mechanism was analyzed. Using the geometric relationship of the linkage-type tilting mechanism, the relationship of the parameters and the performance index was defined using nonlinear algebraic equations. With the defined relation, the effect of change in the parameters on the performance was analyzed. The analysis result can be used in the optimum design of a tilting mechanism that considers the track environment, vehicle and operational condition in which the tilting vehicle is applied.
