  1. 1. Effect of Temperature on Mechanical Properties of Railway Wheel Steels

    Författare :Dimitrios Nikas; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Nyckelord :Materials Science; Materialvetenskap;

    Sammanfattning : One of the most important aspects in railway operation is the interaction between rail and wheel. The contact conditions give rise to wear and damage in both components. Medium carbon steels are used in these components due to their combination of high strength and good wear properties in relation to cost. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Influence of combined thermal and mechanical loadings on pearlitic steel microstructure in railway wheels and rails

    Författare :Dimitrios Nikas; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Nyckelord :TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Low cycle fatigue LCF ; Wheel steels; Hardness; TEM; Thermal effects; EBSD; Rail steels; Pearlite; Multiaxial fatigue; Spheroidisation; Materials Science; Materialvetenskap;

    Sammanfattning : One of the most important aspects in railway operation is the interaction between rail and wheel. The contact patch between these two components is around the size of a small coin, and since high loads act on this small area, stresses will give rise to wear and damage in both components. LÄS MER
