WEAR OF RAILWAY WHEELS FROM THE POINT OF VIEW OF MATERIALS USED

VERSCHLEISS AN EISENBAHNRAEDERN AUS WERKSTOFFTECHNISCHER SICHT

Wear due to the material usually affects the flange and running surface equally, since both areas are subject to friction which causes the onset of wear. The article examines the effect of the structure and composition of the alloy on resistance values. Running characteristics of the axle on the track also affect wheel wear. Micro-alloyed steels are therefore used more and more for solid wheels in international traffic.
