Dynamic Analysis of a Bogie Tilting Mechanism

대차 틸팅 기구의 동적 해석

  • Published : 2003.12.01


Using a conventional railway, a tilting train was applied as a means of improving vehicle speed curve negotiation without any modification of infrastructure. In order to achieve the optimal car-body position control through the tilting mechanism, a dynamics analysis was required after the kinematics analysis of the tilting mechanism. For this, the geometric relationship of the linkage-type tilting mechanism was defined. Then, the equations of motion for the half car-body were derived. With the derived equations, the effect of the parameter change on 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 conditions in which the tilting vehicle is applied.
