To develop the braking rates required by the high-speed Advanced Passenger Train of British Railways, wheelside protection is essential not only to protect wheels but to optimize adhesion. An analogy between gear-tooth scuffing and limits of adhesion has been developed. The factors leading to wheel slide, the period in which such adhesion changes take place and the response of a control system to such actions are all examined.
