INVESTIGATIONS OF THE TRACK GAGE STABILITY OF WHEEL SETS WITH BLOCK-BRAKED SOLID WHEELS

UNTERSUCHUNGEN ZUR SPURMASSTABILITAET BEI RADSAETZEN MIT KLOTZGEBREMSTEN VOLLRAEDERN

The investigations described were carried out to determine the influence of the shape of the wheel centers of solid wheels on their thermal distortion and permanent set in axial direction during or after heating of the wheel tire by the brake blocks. Analyses by computation using the method of finite elements served the purpose of finding wheel center shapes featuring a minimum thermal distortion. Subsequent braking tests on prototype wheels on the test stand proved that a small thermal distortion results also in small permanent set.
