  1. 1. Wheel-rail Interaction Analysis

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Maskinkonstruktion

    Author : Tanel Telliskivi; KTH.; [2003]
    Keywords : Archard; rolling-sliding; Winkler; wear simulation;

    Abstract : A general approach to numerically simulating wear in rollingand sliding contacts is presented in this thesis. A simulationscheme is developed that calculates the wear at a detailedlevel. READ MORE

  2. 2. On Efficient Modelling of Wheel-Rail Contact in Vehicle Dynamics Simulation

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Matin Shahzamanian Sichani; KTH.; [2016]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; wheel-rail contact; non-elliptic contact; rail vehicle dynamics; rolling contact; vehicle-track interaction; wheel-rail damage; Järnvägsgruppen - Fordonsteknik; Järnvägsgruppen - Fordonsteknik; Järnvägsgruppen - Tribologi; The KTH Railway Group - Tribology; Vehicle and Maritime Engineering; Farkostteknik;

    Abstract : The wheel-rail contact is at the core of all research related to vehicletrackinteraction. This tiny interface governs the dynamic performanceof rail vehicles through the forces it transmits and, like any high stressconcentration zone, it is subjected to serious damage phenomena.

  3. 3. Time-domain modelling of high-frequency wheel/rail interaction

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Astrid Pieringer; [2011]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; discrete irregularities; frictional instability; non-Hertzian contact; railway noise; time domain; transient contact; wheel rail interaction; roughness;

    Abstract : The interaction between wheel and rail is the predominant source of noise emission from railway operations in a wide range of conventional speeds. On the one hand, this wheel/rail noise concerns rolling noise and impact noise caused by the vertical interaction excited by roughness and discrete irregularities of the wheel/rail running surfaces, respectively.

  4. 4. Simulation of Wheel and Rail Profile Evolution Wear Modelling and Validation

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH

    Author : Roger Enblom; KTH.; [2004]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; contact; wear; wear prediction; wear model; wheel profile; rail profile; simulation vehicle-track interaction; multibody simulation; MBS; TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIKVETENSKAP;

    Abstract : Numerical procedures for reliable wheel and rail wearprediction are rare. Recent development of simulationtechniques and computer power together with tribologicalknowledge do however suggest computer aided wear prediction. READ MORE
