Abstract

A kinematic constraint representing a general spatial curve joint was developed and its computational implementation was considered. The resultant general spin curve kinematic serves as the basis for the construction of the railway as it provides a moving frame, associated to the curve where the osculating plane is defined with respect to which the cant angle can be defined.
