Monday 1st November 1993

Methods of calculations of stress in individual parts of car slings are discussed. Special attention is given to welded slings which are considered rigid frames. Mathematical solution is carried out for three operational conditions: normal operation (running conditions), safety gear operation and buffer engagement. Load exerted upon each part of the car frame is depicted and bending moments along the frame are illustrated in each particular case.
