An analytical study of the effect of changing the design parameters of a two mass, six-degree-of-freedom suspension system was made. Rail cars with coil and air springs were analyzed by analog and digital computer. Spring stiffness, spring spacing, damping rates, height of center of gravity, and total mass were varied. The effect on frequency and response were determined.
