PREDICTED AND MEASURED WHEEL STRAINS RESULTING FROM PROLONGED DRAG BRAKING
This paper discusses the wheel strains produced by prolonged drag braking. Analytical and experimental results are compared. Residual stresses are determined to aid in the interpretation of the experimental data. It is suggested that the experimental results can best be explained by the complex initial residual stress field within the wheel.
