Analysing the results, shown in Figures 5 and 6, it is clear that the two-axle bogie locomotive can significantly reduce the impact on the track of the locomotive in terms of lateral loads. Considering the track with short radius curves the lateral load of the more critical wheelset is reduced of more than the 35%.
It also explores the possibility of using simple equilibrium models to estimate the in-plane lateral load capacity of the walls tested.
The frame transfers four type of loads: Torsional load, Lateral load, Vertical load, and Longitudinal load [4].
The specimens without foundation tests were used to study the behavior under a lateral load. Column specimens with a length of 1200 mm were designed, as shown in Figure 1.
The course load and vertical load of the landing gear act on the center of the tire axle, while the lateral load acts on the contact point between the tires and the ground.
In the force control stage, the increment of lateral load was 20 kN until the first yielding of the longitudinal steel bars during the tests.
The influence of design parameters, such as axial load ratio, EQFRR, expansion ratio, elastic modulus of FRP reinforcement, compressive strength of concrete, and shear span ratio of column, were then further evaluated in terms of the lateral load capacity, ductility, energy dissipation, lateral stiffness, and residual displacement of strengthened columns.
Many authors have studied experimental concrete shear wall models tested in a laboratory under cyclic in-plane lateral load and have developed analytical models which represent with good accuracy the global and local hysteretic experimental behavior.
The biomechanical study should be made to the axial load in a position of flexion of 5, the bending load in a position of flexion of 75[degrees]and the lateral load on the radial condyle.
