The article analyzes the motion of a wheelset along a path of unequal length with shaft wear of the rails. The authors have studied the influence of an external disturbing force on the parametric system “wheel-rail”. The considered problem is solved on the basis of a mathematical model of interaction of a pair of wheels and an unequal rail, taking into account the additive effect of unequal stiffness on a rail vehicle. It is shown that taking into account the unequal elasticity of the track in the longitudinal direction allows to determine more precisely the resonance regions and to evaluate the decrease or increase of the acceleration level and the amplitudes of the impact of the unsprung mass of the rail vehicle.

An analysis of studies of transient modes of train movement showed  that the coupling of freight cars with long loads, inter-car connections and bogies is a dynamic system with many degrees of freedom. When testing for impact, the coupler performs complex spatial vibrations due to the work of draft gears and spring suspension of the car, as well as the turnstile support and fastening device . An analytical study of these oscillations in the most complete and general form leads to the need to compose and solve a system with a large number of differential equations . The interdependence between numerous design parameters is complex, so it is almost impossible to accurately assess the effect of one or another parameter on the dynamic qualities of cars. Therefore, a complex spatial system is usually replaced by a simpler (idealized) calculation scheme with a limited number of degrees of freedom, which retains the main properties of the considered dynamic system, as applied to specific problems. For this, a number of assumptions are usually introduced that simplify the calculation schemes . When justifying the choice of simplifications of the calculation scheme, the goal of the forthcoming study plays an important role. The assumptions are chosen in such a way that when establishing the basic laws of motion of the studied elements of the dynamic system, the calculation error would not exceed the error of the experimental data [5-6]. In this case, the distorted idea of the movement of other elements of the system does not matter . Studying the regularities of fluctuations of long-length cargo and establishing the optimal parameters of shock-absorbing devices on the basis of the mathematical model of the dynamic system “railway platform-turnstile-long-length cargo”, taking into account the dynamics of collision of cars, is an extremely difficult task.
2. Materials and methods
Taking into account the accepted assumptions [8-9], the design scheme for studying the parameters of inter-car connections and the system for depreciation of long-length cargo during collisions is shown in Fig. 1. The following designations are adopted on the diagram:

The kinetic energy of the considered movement of the platform coupler with long loads on the turnstile will take the form:
Substituting Eq. (4) and Eq. (3), we obtain the general expression for the kinetic energy:
Possible work equations:
Substituting into Eq. (6) the equations of spring sets settlement:
Then the equation of possible work will take the form:
We find the partial derivatives of the kinetic energy with respect to the generalized velocities, and then their time derivatives are calculated to compose differential equations; the Lagrange equations of the second kind are used:
3. Results and discussion
The numerical values of the parameters and their dimensions are presented in Figure 1. The problem is solved by the Runge Kutta method by stepwise integration [8-9].

Based on the above, it has been established that more effective protection of a long load cannot be carried out by additional suspension. Therefore, it is advisable to consider the possibility of reducing vertical accelerations by reducing the rigidity of the spring suspension of loaded bogies. The study of the influence on the vertical dynamics was carried out on the basis of the TsNII-KhZ bogie, where the stiffness of the spring set is 400 T.m-1.
Analysis of the results of investigations of vibrations in the vertical plane made it possible to draw the following conclusions:
1) An increase in the rigidity of the inter-car connection leads to an increase in the accelerations and movements of the turnstile device. At the same time, an increase in the dissipation factor from 0.25 to 0.9 leads to a decrease in the acceleration of the turnstile device and its displacement by 10-30 %.
2) Increasing the loading of the turnstile increases the degree of its depreciation, i.e. when the platform coupling is fully loaded and the duration of the shock pulse is 0.2-0.4 s, the acceleration of the lower support beam of the turnstile and platforms is equivalent.
3) Due to insignificant accelerations and displacements from the action of dynamic forces in the vertical plane and sufficient rigidity of the spring sets of the TsNII-KhZ bogie, additional suspension of a long load is not advisable.
