"Handbook of Railway Vehicle Dynamics"


Prof. Jordi Vinolas contributes to the Second Edition of the Handbook of Railway Vehicle Dynamics. Together with Sebastian Stichel, Anna Orlova and Mats Berg, they cover Chapter 6. Suspension Elements and Their Characteristics. 

The handbook has become a reference and is edited  by Simon Iwnicki, Maksym Spiryagin, Colin Cole, Tim McSweeney in CRC Press, Published November 28, 2019, Reference - 893 Pages - 842 B/W Illustrations, ISBN 9781138602854 - CAT# K388211

The book provides expanded, fully updated coverage of railway vehicle dynamics. With chapters by international experts, this work surveys the main areas of rolling stock and locomotive dynamics. Through mathematical analysis and numerous practical examples, it builds a deep understanding of the wheel-rail interface, suspension and suspension component design, simulation and testing of electrical and mechanical systems, and interaction with the surrounding infrastructure, and noise and vibration. Topics added in the Second Edition include magnetic levitation, rail vehicle aerodynamics, and advances in traction and braking for full trains and individual vehicles.
