  1. 1. Combined thermal and mechanical loading of railway wheel treads. A numerical study of material response and cracking under braking conditions

    Author : Sara Caprioli; [2011]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Rolling Contact Fatigue; Ratchetting; Tread braking; Plastic deformation; Thermal cracking;

    Abstract : The scope of the thesis is prediction of the material response owing to combined thermal and mechanical loading of a railway wheel tread. The long-term objective is to improve models for prediction of surface-initiated Rolling Contact Fatigue (RCF) under the combined effect of mechanical loading due to rolling (and sliding) contact and thermal loading due to braking and/or wheel--rail friction.
