Abstract

The objective of this work is to study transverse vibration of a passenger car body running at various speeds over the track irregularities, which are usually encountered in practice. The tasks that are addressed in this research work: perform tests at track irregularities of symmetrical sinusoidal shape running both along straight and curved paths, as well as driving over the junctions along the straight and curved paths, and compare the results.
