Determination of the Loading of the Carrying Structure of a Tank Wagon During Transportation by a Railway Ferry
Times cited (SCOPUS): 1
ABSTRACT: A study of the dynamic loading of the carrying structure of a tank wagon during transportation on a railway ferry was carried out. The studies were carried out with the angular displacements of the railway ferry around the longitudinal axis (lurch), as the case of the highest load on the carrying structure of the tank wagon. It was found that the acceleration total value that acts on the outermost tank wagon from the bulwark is 0.31g. The resulting value of acceleration, as a component of the dynamic load, was taken into account when calculating the strength of the carrying structure of the tank wagon, taking into account the typical scheme of interaction with chain ties. The research carried out will contribute to the creation of recommendations for the safe operation of tank wagons in international rail and water traffic and increasing the efficiency of rail transport functioning.
