    Simulation of rolling stock dynamics considering the elasticity of the wheelset as a prediction method for life and durability of its elements

    The wheelset and its components (the axle and the wheel) are subject to technical regulation. Therefore, in order to establish the assigned service life in accordance with TRCU 001/2011 (Technical Regulations of the Customs Union) and the examination frequency taking into account the durability parameters of rolling stock components in accordance with VNIIZhT RD 27.05.01-2017, it is necessary to assess the operational loading obtained from the running testing results, with respect to the part strength characteristics which are calculated during the bench tests. At present, to estimate the stress-strain state (SSS) in various machine-building structures, the strain measurement method is widely used, which allows to assess their performance with high accuracy. However, determining the SSS of a wheelset is not only a difficult task due to the constant rotation and movement of the wheelset relative to the bogie, but also expensive due to the employment of special non-contact measuring systems. Development of a dynamic model using modern software systems allows determination the stress-strain state of the wheelset elements by creating dynamic models as a system of perfectly rigid and elastic bodies connected by strength members and hinges. To confirm the adequacy of the parameters obtained in the simulation, verification is carried out according to the results of running dynamic strength tests. Thus, using the obtained model of the rolling stock and the track it is possible to make life and durability assessment as well as optimize the main rolling stock components. On the example of a freight gondola car model, a diagram of the dependence of dynamic stress amplitude distribution on the frequency of the occurrence in the wheel has been obtained, and considering the results of the earlier bench tests of standard specimens and full-scale wheels the period has been determined for durability from the moment of crack initiation in the wheel up to its fracture, as well as the assessment of the safety factor for durability is given.

    Influence of dry friction forces on stability movement of freight cars

    The article considers the dynamic processes of the oscillatory system «wagon - way», its mathematical model is formed and its features are established. The analysis of existing approaches to the consideration of the influence of dissipative forces on the stability of rolling stock is carried out, their shortcomings are revealed. When composing dynamic process equations, it is important to proceed from their exact expressions when considering kinetic and potential energy, i.e. to take into account the relationship between generalized coordinates, which will allow us to consider in detail the process of rolling stock oscillations. The zone of autoparametric resonance is found. It is established that dry friction forces do not interfere with parametric resonance. Dynamic equations are compiled taking into account the scattering forces arising in the contact points of the structural elements of the car. The influence of dry friction forces on the critical coefficient of parametric excitation is determined. The areas of dynamic instability of a car when moving along a railway track with different characteristics are determined. The features of the behavior of the system under the influence of dry friction forces are revealed. It is established that dry friction forces do not reduce the amplitude of bouncing and can lead to an increase in lateral pitching vibrations due to energy pumping.

    Multilayer surfacing of a freight car wheel rim

    For a radical solution of the issue of extending the service life of wheelsets of the freight cars, it is proposed to weld not only serviceable wheels, but also wheels to be pressed against an unacceptable rim thickness. It is shown that in multilayer surfacing, the possibility of obtaining high quality metal becomes more difficult, and heating of a thin rim can have an adverse effect on the gap between the inner surfaces of the wheels. The purpose of the work is to optimize the technological parameters of the multi-electrode surfacing mode, determine the amount of warpage of the wheel disk and study the quality of the deposited metal during operational tests of wheel sets. Experimental surfacing was carried out on the optimal parameters of the multi-electrode process, and a method for measuring the value of wheel warping in conditions of multilayer surfacing was proposed. The results of studies on the influence of the multi-electrode surfacing process on the metal structure and wheel warping are presented. It is shown that under the optimal surfacing mode, favorable conditions are created for obtaining fine-grained structures in the near-seamed zone. Field tests of the freight cars wheel sets were carried out to determine the efficiency and reliability of the method of automatic multi-electrode surfacing of the wheel rim. The task of the tests was a comparative assessment of the resistance of the wheels under study to defects and wear. The implementation of the task involved obtaining data for the wheel sets being researched on the number of cases of wheel failure due to the insufficient quality of the welded surfacing metal. It was found that wheel warping does not cause any dangers that threaten traffic safety, and the weld metal has the necessary resistance to cracking under the action of operational loads.
