COMPRESSION STRESSES DUE TO HEAT TREATMENT ON RAILWAY WHEEL RIMS

CONTRAINTES DE COMPRESSION INDUITES PAR TRAITEMENT THERMIQUE DANS LES JANTES DE ROUES DE CHEMIN DE FER

The increasingly harsh conditions of use of railway stock are such that railway wheels need improved strength. A heat treatment process has been adapted to both increase wear resistance and create compression stresses in the rim to stop the damage from operating conditions getting worse. The ways of producing these constraints, measuring them, and the different methods used are described in turn.
