CURVE SQUEAL NOISE BY TRAMS. PART 2. WHEEL/RAIL INTERACTION

The curve squeal noise by trams is a tonal noise of high amplitude produced by the wheel when negotiating sharp curves. A theoretical mode to predict the noise and study the influence of different mechanical parameters in the generation of noise is presented. This report describes the wheel-rail interactions.
