We perform the following types of tests using the yaw test rig (turntable):
The testing laboratory is using two types of yaw test rigs:
Measurement of bogie yaw resistance
The tests shall be carried out in accordance with TSI LOC&PAS, TSI WAG, European standards or according to special customer requirements.
The purpose of this test is to determine body-to-bogie yaw torque which is generated by the passage of the vehicle through curves. The test is carried out by rotating the bogie to the given angle, measuring the angle of rotation and the force required to rotate the bogie.
Curve passability test, ferryboat and traverser entry test
The tests shall be carried out in accordance with European and national standards, UIC leaflets, ERRI documents or according to special customer requirements.
The aim of the tests is:
examination of the position of individual parts of the vehicle and determination of the risk of failure if the bogie rotates to the limit positions.
