CRRC Tangshan Bogie Fatigue Analysis

Under a commercial contract with the CRRC Tangshan Co. Ltd. in China, TTCI applied its analytical expertise not only in experimental data analysis, but fatigue numerical FEA analysis as well. This FEA analysis was performed to a CRRC Tangshan TSE200 series bogie at a component level. The analysis allowed the fatigue study of a radial arm under a cyclic loading of 10 million cycles and helped CRRC Tangshan to better understand the performance of the component.
