Creep, or the additional rotation of a wheel transmitting tractive force due to the elasticity of the tire and rail, is important in solving many riding and other problems and there appears to be some difficulty in its calculation because estimated values often do not agree with actual measurements. The author presents the problem in a simpler manner and a revised expression is obtained from which creep can be easily calculated.
