Finite Element Analysis on Contact of Wheel and High Manganese Steel Crossing
An elastic-plastic finite element study on the contact of a railway wheel and a high manganese steel crossing is reported. The contact model of the wheel/crossing/ties is established to simulate the interactions between the wheel and crossing and between the crossing and ties. The effects of train speed and axle load on the von Mises stress and the equivalent plastic strain of the high manganese steel crossing are discussed.
