  1. 1. Modelling Stiffness and Damping by Use of Fractional Calculus with Application to Railpads

    Author : Åsa Fenander; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : stiffness; initial conditions; modal synthesis; time integration; measurements; fractional calculus; railway tracks; fractional integrals; damping; railpads; structural dynamics; fractional derivatives; mathematical models;

    Abstract : When studying the dynamic behaviour of a structure, e g a railway track, it is important for the analyst to model both stiffness and damping accurately. Mathematical models including fractional derivatives have been found to work well for many materials. Such models are linear and causal. READ MORE

  2. 2. Train---Track Interaction. Coupling of Moving and Stationary Dynamic Systems: Theoretical and Experimental Analysis of Railway Structures Considering Wheel and Track Imperfections

    Author : Jens Nielsen; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : A general and well-structured method is advanced for analysis of the vertical dynamic interaction between a train and its track. The trains studied are modelled as linear or non-linear discrete mass-spring-damper systems. READ MORE
