Jiang, Jason Zheng, Matamoros-Sanchez, Alejandra Z., Goodall, Roger M. and Smith, Malcolm C. (2012) Passive suspensions incorporating inerters for railway vehicles. Vehicle System Dynamics, 50 (sup1). pp. 263-276. ISSN 0042-3114Metadata only available from this repository.
This paper investigates the possibility of improving the performance of railway vehicle suspensions by incorporating a newly developed mechanical device known as the inerter. A comparative study of several low-complexity passive suspension layouts is made. Improved performance for the lateral and vertical ride comfort, as well as lateral body movement when curving are demonstrated in comparison with the conventional suspension layout. The constraints imposed are to maintain the same level of other performance metrics. The calculations and optimisations are based on linearised plan-view and side-view high-speed train mathematical models.
