Date of Publication :7th November 2016

Abstract: The Paper explores the possibilities of implementing various semi active suspension systems in Rail Vehicle Dynamics. The dynamic behavior of the rail vehicle using various semi active suspension techniques is studied and the level of vibration isolation achieved for various suspension systems is compared. Different Semi-active models are explored and compared with the passive suspension model. The analysis is done with the help of MATLAB/SIMULINK model. Possible means of practically implementing the semi active suspension systems are also explored.
