Abstract

The dynamics of ropeway vehicles of an aerial ropeway is investigated experimentally by a set of measurements including velocities of the hauling cable at the driving disk and the running gear and time-dependent deviation angles of the hangers. A measurement of the damping characteristics of vehicle oscillations shows that both damper and friction resistance at the bolt play a role regarding the dynamics of a ropeway vehicle passing a support. The results allow the development of accurate computational tools for future simulation tasks.
