RESILIENT WHEELS TO REDUCE NOISE OF CARS

In this paper, the construction, the characteristics and the state of development of resilient wheels is discussed. It has been ascertained that resilient wheels contribute to reducing the noise from rolling contact of the wheels on rails and, until now, they have been mainly used for low-speed cars, i.e., streetcars and some subways. Recently, the noise of higher speed cars has also become a major problem. Hence the necessity of studying the use of resilient wheels in higher speed cars, as well as their construction.
