This paper is concerned with the dynamic response of straddle-monorail with single-axle bogie under curve condition. A 15 degrees-of-freedom(DOF) dynamic model is established for straddle-type monorail vehicle with single-axle bogie, which consists driving wheels, steering wheels and stabilizing wheels. The motion equations of the straddle-type monorail vehicle are derived using the Lagrange's equation, and the wheel-rail contact model and the curving track beam model are created. Compared with the test results, the accuracy of the method is verified. Finally, the influence of curve radius, curve superelevation rate, number of passengers and stiffness of driving wheels on dynamic response is discussed.
