The invention relates to rail transport, and is intended for control and assessment of the geometry of the rail track on the forces of interaction between rolling stock and train tracks.

A device for measuring vertical and lateral interaction forces between wheel and rail, containing a train wheel pair, the strain gages included diametrically in half-bridge strain gauge circuit and placed on opposite sides of the axis concentric with the diameters of the inner and outer sides of the drive wheels, amplifiers, clock and sync generator, control unit and blocks of electronic keys vertical and lateral forces, the blocks determine the direction of the lateral forces (strain gauge wheel pair). The strain gages the inner side of the wheel disc are installed on the same diameter with a radius of 0.6-0.7 of the radius of the drive wheel, and the strain gages the outer side of the drive wheels are installed on the same diameter with a radius of 0.6-0.8 of the radius of the drive wheel (SU inventor's certificate No. 1312412, CL G01L 1/22, G01L 5/16, publ. 1987).

The disadvantage of this method is the limited number of measured parameters - vertical and lateral forces on the right and left wheels and the lack of accountability of the dynamics of longitudinal forces arising from the movement of trains, which reduces functional is e capabilities of the device.

Known way to assess road condition, taken as a prototype, which consists in the fact that using car potenzmittel determine the state of the geometry of the path: the radii of the curves, the position of rail lines in plan and profile, gauge and other settings: by using strain-gauge wheelsets spend the determination of the value and the ratio of the lateral and vertical forces N/V (the ratio of V/H, as adopted in the Russian Federation) in the interaction between rolling stock and track and separate the wheel from the rail and on the basis of the results of measurement of the geometric parameters of the path and speed of trains estimate the probability of retirement due to the rolling of the wheel flange to rail; determine the route, which can be the values of the coefficients of the stability margin of the wheel against the vanishing below the normative values and develop recommendations for current maintenance of the road in these areas (the Magazine of the Railway of the world", 2007, №8, p.74-77).

The disadvantages of this method of assessment pathways are:

- the impossibility of accounting for the dynamics of longitudinal forces arising from the movement of trains, while the longitudinal profile of the path determines the modes of conducting train when you have transients with a significant increase in longitudinal forces such as braking mode trains (downhill) or thrust (n is the rise);

no simultaneous evaluation of longitudinal strength train and forces of interaction between wheels and rails, which does not provide an assessment of the impact of each force factors on the reduction factor of stability.

The technical result is to increase the reliability and effectiveness the assessment of railway track by taking into account the simultaneous action of the longitudinal forces in the train and forces of interaction between wheel and rail.

This technical result is achieved by using diagnostic wagon, equipped with strain gauge wheel pairs (TCH), strain coupler, instrumentation, satellite navigation systems and wireless data transmission, which is installed in the cargo train, determine the state of the geometry of the track: the radii of the curves, the position of rail lines in plan and profile, track width, and other parameters with reference to electronic GPS map rail, and connect them with the data of the last passages car potenzmitel. At the same time, using strain-gauge wheelsets spend a definition of the values of the lateral and vertical forces, their ratio in the interaction between rolling stock and track, as well as individual wheels with the rail, and using strain gauge coupler determine cont the flax-dynamic forces in the rolling stock, assess dangerous for movement of empty cars section of rail track and bind them to the profile rail. Based on the results of measurement of geometrical parameters of the track and speed of the rolling stock estimate the probability of retirement due to rolling of the wheel flange to rail; determine the route, which can be values for the factor of resistance against derailment below normative values and make recommendations on current maintenance of the tracks on such sites.

Diagnostic car 1 is equipped with an antenna 21, a satellite navigation system 22, a wireless data transmission system 23 that is built into the system Board register 2 and you can bind route diagnostic car 1 to e-GPS map rail 24.

Diagnostic car 1 is equipped with measuring instruments binding force factors to the profile rail 24, which is installed on PTC site 18 diagnostic car 1 and include forming device pulses 25, is fixed mechanically on the axis 6 strain gauge wheelsets 5 diagnostic of the car 1, the inductive sensor 26 attached to the glass pan 18, opposite the device forming pulses 25 and allow you to register the pulses when the motion of the diagnostic car 1, which is proportional to the angle of rotation of the wheel 27 strain of the pair of wheels 5 and traversed the track 24, which contains the rails 28 and forms two rails with a gauge of L.

When this diagnostic car 1, made for example on the base of the tank car, the mouth of nalivajut in composition of freight train approximately 2/3 the length of the train from the head stock. In the preparation of the train route from a fixed operator serves a command to transfer system onboard recording 2 of "disabled" in the operating mode, then include all measuring devices.

- vertical V and the side H of the interaction force wheels 27 with rails 28; longitudinal dynamic forces acting in the coupler 10 diagnostic car 1 in modes of traction and braking, as well as from the longitudinal profile of the track 24, the vertical, transverse and longitudinal acceleration of the main frame 9 diagnostic car 1; move Buchs 18 of the right and left wheels 27 strain gauge wheelsets 5 relative to the main frame; rotating the front and rear axle 12 relative to the main frame 9 diagnostic car 1 to establish more precise reasons for the decrease in Kyand more reliable determination of the cross section of the path with the lowest Ky.

All registered parameters recorded synchronously with reference to the profile path roughly (about 10...15 m) using a satellite navigation system 22 and accurately using measuring instruments installed on PTC site 18 wheels 27, which includes an inductive sensor 26 and the forming device pulses 25 (accuracy 1...2 m).

Upon detection of the cross sections of the path with the lowest value is of K yperform the analysis:
