SIMULATED OPERATING STRESSES IN 28-IN.-DIA WHEELS
An analytical stress analysis of B-28 and CB-28 wheels of various designs is presented. Simulated service inputs of vertical, lateral, and brake shoe forces producing thermal loads from emergency braking are used. Octahedral stress mapping is used to display the stress fields generated in the wheels under combination of the above loading conditions. The results show that both wheels have low octahedral stresses when only vertical or vertical and lateral loads are applied, but under combined loading conditions including tread braking the stress levels in the B-28 contour exceed those in the CB-28 wheels.
