Summary
This paper focuses on the research of hunting instability criteria for two bifurcation types of vehicles. Firstly, the influence of track excitations on bifurcation graph is considered and a method of applying track excitation added with lateral impulse is proposed. Then, According to various criteria including the amplitude of limit cycles, RMS value of bogie frame acceleration and RMS value of the sum of guiding force, the hunting instability assessment is compared. The safety assessment of two vehicles after limit cycle instability is conducted. Thus, the safety domain of two vehicles can be determined respectively. Besides, the hunting instability and running safety assessment for worn wheel profile vehicles are also studied. Finally, the stability tests on full scale roller rig are conducted to compare different criteria and validate the simulation result.
