This paper descriptionbes briefly some aspects of the experimental research on the South African Railways into the conditions affecting the riding quality of railway vehicles. Parameters which influence the vertical riding quality of railway vehicles are given against the theory of forced vibrations. Results recorded during riding quality tests were found to be in good agreement with the theory. A method of simulating vertical oscillations of railway vehicles on a digital computer is outlined.
