SOME OBSERVATIONS ON THE FALLING WEIGHT TEST FAILURES OF TYRES

The wheels and tires are items of railway systems. Coarse grain size is mainly responsible for the failures in falling weight tests. The final grain size depends upon the finishing temperature. In direct spray quenching practice, the finishing temperatures are largely influenced by heating practice and rolling. Surface imperfections like inclusions, laps, cracks and deep tool marks act as stress raisers and can cause failures when the grain size is coarse.
