RESEARCH ON THE STABILITY OF THE GAUGE MEASUREMENT OF WHEELSETS WITH SOLID WHEELS AND BRAKE SHOES

The purpose of this research was to determine the effect of the shape of solid wheel centres on their permanent heat- induced axial deformation, when brake shoes were used for braking. First, mathematical analyses based on the finite element method were used to find wheel centre shapes with a minimum tendency to deformation under the effect of heat. Then braking tests with prototype wheels on a test bench were performed to confirm the mathematical analyses. Certain types of corrugated wheel centre show minimum deformation.
