Study into the suitability of a Y/Q limit value of 0.8 for empty wagons.
Final report B12/RP76 “Y/Q limit value: study into the suitability of a Y/Q limit value of 0.8 for empty wagons” had been elaborated.
Having assessed the investigation results, the experts came to the conclusion that the limit value Q/Y = 8.8 would be retained. However, due to a lack of information on other bogies and vehicle types for new articulated wagons, the Y/Q data would be processed according to the conditions in C138 (C138/RP9 Report) from the 1980s. Otherwise the limit value would have to be increased.
