Bogie Durability & Fatigue

Driven by global economic expansion, environmental awareness and internationalization of railways, high-speed rail engineers are under intense pressure to design faster trains that also carry higher payloads. Rail fatigue testing is essential to this effort. These tests must accurately simulate real-world service conditions for bogies (including wheels, axles and bearings), which typically experience complex loading. Fatigue testing delivers critical information about the expected service life of these innovative bogie designs.

With extensive experience in rail fatigue testing, MTS understands the unique challenges rail test engineers face. To help engineers create extremely realistic simulations for rail fatigue testing, MTS brings not only deep domain expertise but a fully integrated portfolio of technologies that are specifically designed to work together and deliver valuable results. These offerings include:

• Custom solutions that incorporate high-performance, fatigue-rated actuators
• Fatigue-rated actuators for infinite fatigue life
• Highly stiff servohydraulic load frames for a range of force requirements
• Powerful software for data validation, analysis, simulation and test monitoring
• Digital controllers with high channel density, high capacity and superior configurability
• Clean, quiet hydraulic power units
