Abstract (en)

The passage floor (1) consists of a first panel (2) fixed to the end of one vehicle section, a second panel (3) fixed to the end of the other, and a moving panel (4) which covers part of each fixed panel. The two moving panels and the fixed panel are connected by a deformable mechanism (5) formed by pivoted levers (6) and linking bars (7). The levers and bars form a deformable parallelogram which guides the moving panel when the vehicle sections move relative to one another, especially on bends or turns.

Abstract (fr)

L'invention concerne un plancher (1) permettant de circuler entre deux véhicules reliés ensemble par une liaison articulée. Le plancher (1) selon l'invention comprend une première palette (2) fixée à l'extrémité de l'un des véhicules et une seconde palette (3) fixée à l'extrémité de l'autre véhicule. Ces deux palettes fixes (2, 3) sont recouvertes chacune partiellement par une palette mobile (4), et elles sont reliées l'une à l'autre par deux organes déformables (5) comportant des bielles (6) et biellettes (7). La palette mobile (4) est ainsi guidée cinématiquement par le parallélogramme déformable lors des mouvements des véhicules, notamment lors du franchissement des virages. <IMAGE>
