SUBJECT: Facilities & Test Equipment
ABSTRACT: A Special Engineering Test was conducted on Metropolitan Atlanta Rapid Transit Authority (MARTA) Car 502 to determine the operating temperature at various undercar locations during worst-case simulated revenue service while operating at AW2 weight (100,000 lbs). This simulated revenue service was run for two hours, with no component or system showing an excessive temperature. No deterioration of vehicle performance was noted during the test. The simulated revenue profile, locations of temperature measurements, and the temperatures recorded are tabulated, and trends are shown.
