Railway applications. Requirements for bogies and running gears

Status : Current, Under review   Published : April 2011



This European Standard consolidates all the separate requirements specified in rolling stock TSIs and European Standards relating to bogies and running gear together into an overall requirement and process that ensures a functional and safe design is achieved for a defined operating envelope. There are many European Standards that specify the design requirements and associated processes of bogie and running gear components and sub-assemblies. There are also European standards that specify vehicle performance and validation requirements that depend directly on the bogies or running gear. The objective of this standard is to bring all these separate design criteria together. This is accomplished by specifying the design and validation processes to be used for bogies and running gear with particular focus on the two key disciplines of dynamic behaviour and structural integrity. To ensure that safe operation can be continued throughout the product life the definition of a maintenance plan is also required. This European Standard is applicable to bogies and running gear intended for vehicles that will operate under the Interoperability Directives on designated TEN routes. The requirements, however, can be used in other applications at the discretion of the interested parties. It specifies the requirements to achieve a satisfactory design of bogie or running gear and to validate the design against the relevant performance and safety criteria. Technical requirements are specified directly or by making reference to the relevant European standards and include the nature and content of an auditable record that should be produced of the design and validation processes. The requirements address only the design and validation of bogies and running gear. No requirements are set for other systems components that are attached to the bogies or running gear, except to establish that a satisfactory interface has been provided.
