PhD topic – Heavy haul train force control product
Problems with large forces in heavy haul trains both in normal operation and tippling operations could be alleviated with additional damping, with a need to improve train dynamic performance without adversely increasing wear or maintenance costs. This research proposes to investigate the dynamic behaviour and feasibility of a Drawbar Damper.
