... grades may be prone to increased wheel shelling, probably due to thermal mechanical shelling (TMS). Side-to-side imbalanced loading appears to play a minor role in wheel shelling for two of the five trainsets. KEYWORDS Wheel, shell, impact, rolling contact fatigue, thermal mechanical shelling WHEEL...

... Corporation 349 RTDF2008-74016 KEYWORDS Wheel, brake shoe, thermal mechanical shelling, tread conditioning BACKGROUND Shelling is a fatigue-based mechanism by which large voids can be left in the running surface of a wheel. Many cycles of high stress create surface cracks in the wheel tread. As the cracks...

... temperature detector (WTD) located near the bottom of a grade in order to explore the root causes of hot wheels and thermal mechanical shelling. Not surprisingly, the data showed that most hot wheels, defined in this paper as a wayside WTD reading of 260°C (500°F) or greater, are found in trains descending...
