Shape Optimization of Railway Wheel Profile under Uncertainties

Last updated on 13 September 2013 11:10
Optimisation of a railway vehicle-track system is a complex process. The paper presents a procedure for optimal design of a wheel profile based on geometrical wheel/rail contact characteristics such as the rolling radii difference (RRD). The procedure uses an optimality criteria based on a RRD function. The criteria accounts for...
