Piecewise linear model for friction draft gear was built based on the friction draft gear impact test data. The piecewise linear modification model was built after theoretical modification was made with the additional viscous friction force and the additional damping force. The vehicle impact simulation and vehicle relative displacement excitation described by trigonometric function which reflected train operation conditions were used to verify and analyze the piecewise linear modification model. The results indicated as follows: The simulation of modified piecewise linear model was closer to the results of the impact test than the conventional piecewise linear model. Transition velocity from kinetic to static friction and the external displacement excitation frequency had an effect on the nonlinear peak of coupler force. Higher transition velocity or lower external frequency caused the coupler force to switch to the nonlinear peak more quickly, and to produce larger hysteresis loop, more vibration energy and smaller subsequent coupler force and relative displacement. The additional viscous friction force simulated the nonlinear peak of the characteristic curve of the draft gear well. The larger equivalent friction coefficient led to a larger additional viscous friction force and coupler force. The combined effects of the additional damping and vehicle structure stiffness resulted in smooth transition between loading curve and unloading curve of the draft gear. Under the modification of additional damping, the draft gear formed a hysteresis loop even if the draft gear suffered loading and unloading on the intermediate curve, and dissipated the vibration energy between the vehicles. ©, 2015, Science Press.

A wheel truck for a railroad car, including: a front wheel pair assembly and a rear wheel pair assembly; two side frame assemblies, each side frame assembly including a square box and journal-box guides; two spring suspension devices; and a bolster assembly including two ends disposed on the two spring suspension devices, respectively. The bolster assembly includes a pilot hole in the center and two mounting holes on the two ends, the pilot hole is rotationally matched with a cylindrical upper center plate of a car body for transmitting vertical and horizontal forces from the car body, and the two mounting holes are disposed above the two spring suspension devices, respectively. Each mounting hole receives a lower side bearing, and the lower side bearing is matched with a corresponding upper side bearing disposed on each side of the car body for transmitting the vertical load from the car body.

By analysis on mechanisms of low strength of green sand mold and peeling and crack of coating that is sprayed on the green mold, an alcohol base corundum compound spray coating is developed to apply to the green sand mold for steel castings. This coating has excellent suspension stability under low density of 50 Baume degree. The coating is not peeled off or does not appear crack when it is sprayed thickly on the green sand mold. The coat has high heat stability and does not react with metallic oxides such as FeO to produce low melt phase when it touches molten steel. This coating has strong ability to resist penetration of molten steel. Bolster and side frame steel castings with clean surfaces can be produced by this coating. Source
