Effects of the brake shoe friction material on the railway wheel damage
Mohammed V University, Mohammadia School of Engineers, ERD3M Laboratory, Morocco
The wheels of a railway axle are the most critical components of a train. These wheels are subjected to several forms of deterioration, including wear, which significantly influences the safety of traffic as well as the dynamic stability of railway vehicles and the lifetime of wheelsets. The objective of this work is to compare the effect of two friction materials of brake shoes at the damage and the wear rate of the ER8 steel wheels.
