...Hiroyuki Sugiyama; Yoshimitsu Tanii; Ryosuke Matsumura In this investigation, a numerical procedure that can be used for the analysis of wheel/rail two-point contact geometries in turnout sections is developed. In turnout section, the tongue rail changes its shape along the track. Cross-sectional...

...Brian Marquis; Khaled E. Zaazaa; Tariq Sinokrot; Ahmed A. Shabana The objective of this study is to examine the geometric description of the spiral sections of railway track systems, in order to correctly define the relationship between the geometry of the right and left rails. The geometry of the...

...Hiroyuki Sugiyama; Yoshihiro Suda In this investigation, a numerical procedure that can be used for the analysis of a wheel and rail contact geometry is developed using the constraint contact formulation. The locations of contact points are determined for given lateral and yaw displacements of a...

... nonlinear springs and dampers used to connect components. An efficient mechanical model for contact dynamics between the wheel and rail during an earthquake is presented. The railway structure is modeled with various finite elements. A nonlinear spring element based on a trilinear elastic-plastic material...

...Cheta Rathod; Ahmed A. Shabana In railroad vehicle dynamics, Euler angles are often used to describe the track geometry (track centerline and rail space curves). The tangent and curvature vectors as well as local geometric properties such as the curvature and torsion can be expressed in terms of...
