An investigation into stick-slip vibrations on vehicle/track systems.
VEHICLE SYST DYN
229 - 236.
A model for the numerical simulation of vehicle/track interaction and stick-slip vibration is presented. A finite element model is developed to calculate vertical contact forces. These forces are then coupled through the contact patch into a non-linear time-domain model by which the stick-slip vibration behaviour of a wheel-rail system is analysed. The investigation suggests that stick-slip vibration may occur if a vehicle which has a maligned or an initial 'wind-up' wheelset meets a vertical irregularity or contaminants on the track.
