WEAR ON EXTERNAL SURFACES OF WHEELS AND RAIL DUE TO FRICTION

VERSCHLEISSVORGANG IM GRENZSCHICHTBEREICH DER REIBPAARUNG RAD/SCHIENE

The stresses borne by rail and wheel elements are analysed on the basis of several fundamental definitions of wear by Fleischer. A number of studies were carried out on plastic deformation, running surfaces and wear characteristics. Partial oxidation can occur when the external surfaces of wheels or rails are deformed because the materials come into contact with the surrounding atmosphere. Oxidised metallic particles are then worn away. Wear is often affected by the characteristics of the process itself or by layers of martensite which are produced by shoe brakes.
