The effects of the friction between frame and adapters on the performance of three-piece truck


For the traditional three-piece truck there is no primary suspension and the connection between side frame and adapter (wheelset) is via direct contact with two-dimensional dry friction on the contact surfaces. The dry friction has two modes: stick and slip motion. Knowledge of the friction on the adapter surface is useful as it affects the wagon dynamic… (More)
