    The advent of tracked high speed ground transportation using the two-sided linear induction motor has renewed interest in the mechanics of a moving force on an elastic track. It is the purpose of this paper to explore the combined dynamics of reaction rail and primary motor under guidance and magnetic forces. Further, the authors present some experimental data taken on a rotating wheel which shows the effect of motion on the vibrations of a follower mass
