Abstract

Wheel wear prediction is a current key-topic in the field of railway research, as it has a big impact on economical and safety aspects in the design, operation and maintenance of train-sets. The aim of this work is to implement a flexible and predictive railway wheel wear tool to obtain, starting from a specific real vehicle mission, the wheel profiles evolution as a function of the distance run. The wear estimation tool consists of a collection of pre and post-processing packages interfaced with commercial multi-body software, which is used to study the railway dynamic problem. The computational tool implemented here is demonstrated through its application to several simulation scenarios. The purpose is to demonstrate the capabilities of the tool on wear prediction by evaluating the influence of the train design and of the track geometry and other boundary conditions. Special attention is also given to study how the wear evolution is affected by friction conditions between wheel and rail.
