Review and recommendations as part of our systems approach
Systems approach in design carefully considers the following:
Evaluating how “matched” wheel/rail profiles should perform, including areas such as rolling radius difference, stability, steering, stability, contact bands, and conicity:
Ensure that the profile design results in stable wheel/rail contact.
Angle of one radius to the other is the same for wheel and rail.
ARM works with key partners to provide friction management review and recommendations as part of our systems approach.
