Research on the Vibration Insulation of High-Speed Train Bogies in Mid and High Frequency

Jia Liu, Xuesong Jin
2018 Shock and Vibration  
The related results may provide a reference for structure improvement of the existing bogies and structure design of the new high-speed bogies.  ...  In order to investigate the main cause of wheel higher-order polygon formation, a 3D flexible model of a Chinese high-speed train bogie is developed using the explicit finite element method.  ...  The model assumes that the small-scale roughness on the running surfaces of the wheel and rail is the primary mechanism for the force generation.  ...
