Abstract

In this paper, analysis for reducing lateral forces is implemented by using a railway vehicle model on a sharp curved track. Also, in order to minimize some problems when a railway vehicle runs on a sharp curved track, an active-steering bogie system is investigated. An active steering bogie system of a railway vehicle is designed to alleviate contact forces and to decrease wear of wheel/rail interaction. This paper describes a modelling of an active steering and a control system for curving performance. Results of simulation, which are lateral forces and wear number of wheels, show more improvement than conventional railway vehicle. Proposed model is more effective on a sharp curved track. Keywords: active steering bogie, sharp curve track, lateral force, curving performance.
