Abstract

As part of the European Commission project ‘SUSTRAIL’ the authors together with other industry and academic partners are designing a freight vehicle optimised for the carriage of high value, low density, time sensitive products. A review of potential engineering innovations has been carried out and a vehicle is being designed based on optimised parameters for this combination of innovative technologies including radial steering, disk braking and optimised bogie frame structure. The results of the selection and optimisation of the running gear are presented here together with an assessment of the potential improvement in running behaviour and its impact on the railway system.
