ARTICLE

ABSTRACT

In this article, we compare the dynamic characteristics of cars with integral wheelsets and wheelsets with independently rotating wheels. We use Sperling’s comfort index to assess the riding comfort. We compare the riding comfort of passenger cars with integral wheelsets and wheelsets with independently rotating wheels based on Sperling’s comfort index.
