The new orientation in construction of bogies consists in realization possibility “negotiation the radii of curvature”, the axes being placed in an approximately radial position. This reduces wear on the wheel and rail surfaces if the stability of the horizontal transverse movements of the vehicle is not affected. In railway motor vehicles, these requirements are achieved by means of rubber elastic elements which by their own damping capacity also contribute to the reduction of axle movement. The paper presents a series of considerations regarding the elastic constants of the springs from the axle steering system.
