This paper investigates ways of applying classical control strategies based upon the idea of skyhook damping to achieve active control of the flexibility of the body of a railway vehicle. Actuators located at the front and rear secondary suspension points are used, and the idea of putting a third actuator at the centre of the body of the vehicle to control the flexibility is also investigated.
