Enhancing the Resistance to Derailment and Side-Wear for a Tramway Vehicle with Independently Rotating Wheels

Focusing on severe wheel flange-wear/rail side-wear and on a series of derailments of tramway vehicles with independently rotating wheels, an investigation has been carried out by comparing against a solid wheelset. Efforts have been made on both aspects of vehicle and track design. Significant reduction of flange-wear has been achieved. The possible causes of derailments have been proposed.
