Work presented in this paper studies the potential of employing inerters - a novel mechanical device used successfully in racing cars - in active suspension configurations with the aim to enhance railway vehicle system performance. The particular element of research in this paper concerns railway wheelset lateral stability control. Controlled torques are applied to the wheelsets using the concept of absolute stiffness. The effects of a reduced set of arbitrary passive structures using springs… CONTINUE READING
