STUDY OF RIM STRESSES RESULTING FROM STATIC LOADS ON DIFFERENT 36-INCH RAILROAD WHEEL DESIGNS

This report is the result of a series of experimental tests made at the Southern Railway Research & Tests Laboratory in Alexandria, Va., on 36-in.-dia., one-wear railroad wheels. The purpose of this investigation was to evaluate the stress levels developed in the rim section of different wheel designs, and to determine if there exists a relationship between high stress levels in the wheel rim and a history of fatigue failures of the wheel tread.
