Abstract

This paper is focused on the influence of the wheelset flexibility on the development of railway wheel polygonalization. A developed method for predicting the evolution of wheel polygonalization is adopted to compare the formation and growth rate of wheel polygonalization in between rigid and flexible wheelsets. Results show that, if the lateral creepage is at a high level, the wheelset flexibility can accelerate the wheel polygonalization; the torsional mode of the wheelset is found to dominate the wheel polygonalization in the case of extreme small radius curve.
