 Abstract:
A Bogie is a chassis carrying wheels attached to the train. Old Bogies are cast models, cast models are huge and bulky. The cast bogie is made in single piece and handling of such components are difficult due to it’s over design and manufacturing cost is also high. This project deals with replacing the casted bogie with fabricated bogie by making major changes in design to take the load without failure. The Structural vibrations of the railway bogie are primarily exited by the tracks. These forced vibrations resulting in stress and fatigue of the bogie frame are investigated by simulations. A critical analysis of the railway bogie frame fatigue strength assessment procedure, with special attention to welded joints is carried out. By making use of Finite Element program (ANSYS) selected criteria were critically compared for reliability and safety.
