J. Eng. Ind 91(3), 869-875 (Aug 01, 1969) (7 pages) doi:10.1115/1.3591720 History: Received July 26, 1968


Recent developments in research into the lateral dynamics of railway vehicles are reviewed with particular reference to dynamic stability, dynamic response, and curving. Two engineering aspects of this work are stressed—namely, the advantages of applying linear theory to a comprehensive study of vehicle dynamics, and the choice of basic assumptions required to make such studies realistic for design purposes.
