Aerodynamics has been an important aspect of the automotive industry for decades with the wheels being a notable contributing factor. They are responsible for up to 25% of the drag in the case of a general passenger car and up to 30%-50% for an open-wheeled race car.<br/> In this research, the aerodynamic characteristics of an isolated rotating...

Wheel-rail high-frequency interaction is closely related to the formation of railway short-wave defects. Finite element (FE) method has been widely used to simulate wheel-rail dynamic systems, but its validity in modelling high-frequency interaction has not been fully demonstrated in three dimensions (3D). This work aims at comprehensively...

As many bridges in the Netherlands are past their design-life and yet still have well-functioning steel superstructures, their bridge decks are often due to be replaced. FRP panels are promising alternatives to concrete decks for these renovation works due to their low density, fast on-site construction time, and excellent acoustic and thermal...

Mexico is one of the countries with the highest number of overweight children<br/>and adolescents in the world and, unfortunately, schools are an important cause<br/>of this problem. Despite the efforts of the Mexican Government in creating new<br/>regulations to reduce the availability of high-calorie food products within and<br/>near schools,...

The dynamics of a moving train are usually described by means of a motion model based on Newton's second law. This model uses as input track geometry data and train characteristics like mass, the parameters that model the running resistance, the maximum tractive effort and power, and the brake rates to be applied. It can reproduce and predict...

This paper presents an experimental study on the development mechanism of short pitch corrugation using an innovative downscale V-Track test rig. Rail corrugation is reproduced in the V-Track with two wavelengths of 6.4 mm and 8.9 mm. Based on the measured wheel-rail contact forces, track dynamic behaviors, and observations, the consistent...

The aerodynamic characteristics of a modern road cycling wheel in cross wind are studied through force- and planar PIV measurements in the TU Delft Open Jet Facility. The performance of the 62 mm deep rim is evaluated for three tire profiles, and yaw angles up to 24°. All measurements are executed at 12.5 m/s (45 km/h) freestream- and wheel...

In practice, the assessment and treatment of rail corrugation are quantitatively based on the corrugation depth. Wheel–rail vertical forces (WRVF), as a direct reflection of wheel–rail interaction, can give expression to the corrugation depth and thus serve as a key parameter for assessing the corrugation. In this paper, we propose an...

Rutting is one of the most common distresses in early damage to asphalt pavements. It can raise the risk of ride safety issues, accelerate pavement deterioration, and increase maintenance costs. To investigate the factors that affect the rutting resistance of asphalt mixtures, internal factors (such as aggregate gradation, asphalt content,...

A large number of bridges in the Netherlands have transversely post tensioned deck slabs cast in-situ between flanges of precast girders and were found to be critical in shear when evaluated by Eurocode 2. To investigate the bearing (punching shear) capacity of such bridges, a 1:2 scale bridge model was constructed in the laboratory and...

A time-domain finite element model is developed to study the transient rolling contact of a driving wheelset over a curved track with Low Adhesion Zones (LAZs) shorter than 1.0 m. LAZs on one rail, i.e., unilateral LAZs occurring more likely, is treated for a speed up to 500 km/h. Structural vibrations of wheelset are analyzed to explain the...

This work provides a foundation for designing aerodynamic mudflaps used in heavy-duty vehicles, which will help these vehicles become greener. First, a simulated moving ground consisting of a leading edge, roller setup and a novel tangential blowing system was devised as an alternative to the expensive conveyor belts necessary for pertinent...

With the maturization of the cubesat market, the requirements for finer control over satellite attitude drives the development of higher performance Attitude Determination and Control Systems. (ADCS)<br/><br/>The ADCS uses reaction wheels as an actuation method, which in turn use brushless DC (BLDC) motors to rotate a heavy rotor wheel. BLDC...

Reaction wheels are often the main contributor to microvibrations on satellites. These vibrations are a source of pointing errors and therefore need to be limited as much as possible. The miniaturization trend in the space industry and universities fostered the production of very small reaction wheels, suited to Cubesat and PocketQube scales. A...

Based on ordinary state-based peridynamic theory, a 2D peridynamic model has been established to investigate fatigue crack propagation in railheads. The proposed model is verified in terms of rail deformation under a quasi-static load and the ductile material-related fatigue failure model. Good agreements have been achieved between a finite...

Conductive alginate capsules encapsulating a bitumen rejuvenator (HealRoad capsules) has demonstrated good healing abilities in pure bitumen and mortar mixes. HealRoad capsules can efficiently heal damage via induction heating. They also release the encapsulated rejuvenator, thereby rejuvenating aged bitumen. These findings indicate that...

A realistic steering feel is one of the key elements to guarantee fidelity on a driving simulator in general, and in particular to replicate on-centre vehicle handling. This requires precise modelling of the steering dynamics, a high bandwidth control loading system, and coupling of virtual and physical components in agreement with...

By modifying friction to the desired level, the application of friction modifiers (FMs) has been considered as a promising emerging tool in the railway engineering for increasing braking/traction force in poor adhesion conditions and mitigating wheel/rail interface deterioration, energy consumption, vibration and noise. Understanding the...

Wheel-rail impact, which arises from structural discontinuities and short-wave defects, becomes more serious with higher train speeds and larger axle loads. The large impact load can accelerate the deterioration of vehicle-track components and induce a high level of impact noise. This paper aims to better understand the characteristics of...

This paper presents the validation of an integrated chassis controller that unites three groups of actuators for the electric vehicle (EV) with independent in-wheel electric motors (IWMs) for each wheel. Controlled actuators are the IWMs, the active suspension, and the braking system. The models of test benches and the designed architecture of...
