LABORATORY WEARING TESTS OF WHEEL MATERIALS

Laboratory tests were made of the stress imposed on materials in the boundary layer, of the hardness of materials and of the wearing process with a view to analysing the causes of frictional wearing between wheel and rail. For the choice of optimum wheel materials recommendations are given with respect to their temperature sensitivity (lower carbon content).
