ANALYSIS OF STRESS OF MECHANICAL ORIGIN IN WHEELSETS. NUMERICAL CALCULATIONS AND APPLICATIONS
Various methods of stress analysis have proved practical in studying the effects of external loading and wheel mounting pressures; Theoretical results have been validated with tests. Observations are made on rim thickness, plate designs, and hub and wheelseat configurations.
