The interposition of special rubber blocks between the center wheel and the tyre determines the low stiffness, enabling the vibration transmission reduction from the wheel-track interaction to the vehicle and improving the passenger comfort and reducing the noise emission. The design can be fully custom based on vehicle layout specification. the wheel design process. In this article a procedure described in [6, 7] is applied to improve the performance of metro vehicles that were suffering from severe wheel wear and instability. Wheel/rail contact properties An important characteristic of the contact between wheel and rail is the rolling radius of a wheel at the contact point [2, 3].

on wheels with heat checks and the cracks appear to be closely related. Note that in the case of spalling, the crack network is either perpendicular or parallel to the surface (Ref.8). Wheel spalling occurs in service after the wheel slides on the rail and patches of martensite are formed on the tread. The wheel slide generates very high

This standard gives the requirements for the design of track alignments and layouts. Information provided on track geometry, the mathematics of track layouts, switch crossing (SC) assemblies, sleepers and rail fastenings is intended to result in designs that take proper account of

A wheel set assembled by fitting wheels onto an axle is an es-sential component of a railway vehicle. An example of a driving wheel set is shown in Fig. 2. The surface of a wheel that contacts the rail is called the tread, and as a measure for smooth running at curves and aligning the wheel

As the advantages of agricultural dual wheels became more evident, farmers sought a more permanent mounting soultion for year-round use. Unverferth direct-axle duals and triple wheel packages fill this need using a bolt-on spacer or hub and factory-style wheels for maximum versatility.

Type SF utilizes the weight of the car itself to compensate for greater-thannormal speeds. The car wheel contacts the SF block at points (E) and (C). In so doing, the wheel lifts 114 from the rail at point (F). This small lift is sufficient to apply the weight of the forward wheels to the wheel stop, thus increasing rail

The Journal of Wheel/Rail Interaction. By Bob Tuzik For three years running, New York City Transit and the Federal Transit Administration have kicked off the annual Wheel/Rail Interaction – Rail Transit conference with discussion of the NYCT/FTA research project to explore integrated wheel/rail analytics on MTA-NYCT's No. 7 Flushing Line.

The Unistrut overhead trolley system moves equipment from 10 to 600 lbs., with reliability, ease and economy. Unistrut trolleys, feature corrosion-free stainless wheel bearings and steel or acetyl wheels that require no lubricaiton; they deliver built-in value and dependability for a wide range of applications.

The rolling contact of a wheel on a rail is the basis of many Rail-Wheel related problems including the rail corrugation, wear, plastic deformation, rotating interaction fatigue, thermo-elastic-plastic behaviour in contact, fracture, creep, and vehicle dynamics vibration.

The most obvious attraction of maglev trains is that they can travel faster than traditional rail trains. The only commercial high-speed maglev, the Shanghai Maglev, is now the fastest train in existence. It travels over 50 mph (80 kph) faster than the fastest high-speed wheel-rail (320-kph Hayabusa, 2013). And it

guidelines consider the characteristics and interfaces of vehicle wheels and rail, track and wheel gauges, rail sections, alignments, speeds, and track moduli. The Handbook includes chapters on vehicles, alignment, track structures, track components, special guidelines have been developed to aid in the design of light rail transit track

How are train wheels made? What are the processes used in

Train wheels are made by either casting or forging. Casting is a process where a mould of the desired shape is made using sand and then molten metal is poured into the mould and allowed to solidify. Forging is a process which in the most rudimenta

Jan 16, 2014The susceptibility of railway wheels to wear and rolling contact fatigue damage is influenced by the properties of the wheel material. These are influenced by the steel composition, wheel manufacturing process, and thermal and mechanical loading during operation. The in-service properties therefore vary with depth below the surface and with position across the wheel tread.

Available for Wheel Loaders, Tractors and adaptable kits for hi-rail trucks and equipment. Made for situations where rail cars need to be moved with on-site mobile machines, Dymax Railcar Couplers can quickly be adapted to either the front or back of wheel loaders or other machines to make on-site machines more versatile.

Sep 04, 2008Optimally configured wheel flange lubrication systems can supply as many as 250 axles. A large number of motor cars with wheel flange lubrication provide the requis-ite lubrication for the rail network. This is the basis on which wheel flange lubrication systems can achieve the desired effect.
