    Abstract

    It is well known that conventional wheelsets have disadvantages of potential oscillatory instability above critical speed as a result of solid coupling between two wheels. Independently rotating wheels can overcome this disadvantage but may loss the natural guidance which solid axis linked wheels have. This paper presents an experimental study of independently rotating wheels which adopt active wheel driven for high speed railway vehicles.
