KEYWORDS: Computer Modeling Frequency, Domain Computer Programs, Lateral Dynamic Stability
ABSTRACT: Frequency domain computer programs developed or acquired by TSC for the analysis of rail vehicle dynamics are described in two volumes. Volume I defines the general analytical capabilities required for computer programs applicable to single rail vehicles and presents a detailed description of frequency domain programs developed at TSC in terms of analytical capabilities, model description, equations of motion, solution procedure, input/output parameters, and program control logic. Descriptions of programs FULL, FLEX, LATERAL, and HALF are presented. TSC programs for assessing lateral dynamic stability of single rail vehicles are also described. Volume II contains program listings including subroutines and card-by-card descriptions for inputing data for the four TSC frequency domain programs described in Volume I.
