A Generalized Solution of Non-Steady State Vehicle Off Tracking in Constant Radius Curves 852333
A simplified mathematical solution to predict transient off tracking of multiple vehicle combinations is presented. The generalized equations assume a constant radius curve of any angular duration with a tangent lead in and run out. The validated solution yields the off tracking of a vehicle or vehicle combination with respect to a track mounted observer. The equations are of continuous piecewise form and are field solvable.
