Paper Title:
Mathematical Modeling of a New Improved Design of a Rail Carriage Suspension System for the Wagons Used in Zimbabwe
  Abstract

This paper discusses the mathematical modeling of a new improved design of the carriage bogie suspension system with emphasis on design for human comfort. The research mainly covered the shock absorbers with the aim of improving ride comfort at higher speeds. The paper focuses on how to reduce vibration transmission to the carriage while designing a railway bogie suspension damping system that is easier to maintain but does not compromise on quality with particular interest in dynamic attributes of the shock absorber. The principal research issues are introduced and looked at in the modeling and the results so obtained are used to calculate the relative transmissibility in the motion of the carriage.
