  1. 1. Mechanical braking systems for trains: A study of temperatures, fatigue and wear by experiments and simulations

    Author : Mandeep Singh Walia; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; tread brakes; experiments; temperatures; disc brakes; wear; Railway braking; simulations; fatigue;

    Abstract : Increased demand for shorter travel times, higher axle loads, increased volumes and increased punctuality of railway traffic calls for a better design and management of the railway subsystems. The present thesis deals with aspects of mechanical friction brakes, in the form of tread brakes and disc brakes. READ MORE

  2. 2. Towards enhanced mechanical braking systems for trains. Thermomechanical capacity of wheel treads at stop braking

    Author : Mandeep Singh Walia; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; finite element analysis; full-scale brake rig testing; tread braking; rolling contact fatigue; high temperature fatigue; Railway wheels; stop braking;

    Abstract : Modern trains are equipped with different braking systems, between which the braking effort can be distributed. Among these, tread braking is still the most common system for friction braking. Tread brake systems are cheap and robust. READ MORE
