This study compares the performance influences for four kinds of tread contour features commonly used in High-Speed trains. The Hopf bifurcation characteristic influencing the dynamic performance for VEHICLE 1 and VEHICLE 2 were analyzed using mathematical matrices models. SIMPACK software was used to create two dynamic models for VEHICLE 1 and VEHICLE 2 for high speed trains equipped with four kinds of treads matched with Chinese 60 rail. Dynamic performance indices for these models were

The study shows that: VEHICLE 1 exhibits a subcritical bifurcation characteristic under different wheel-rail matching conditions. VEHICLE 2 dynamic performance index values do not increase as speed increases, but wear index gradually increased with increased speed. Vehicles with different structural parameters, wheel-rail matching greatly influences bifurcation stability, comfort and wheel-rail wear. This method indicates an important reference value for wheel-rail matching in high-speed trains and structural parameters of stability and safety for these vehicle systems.
