Recent research projects relating to wheelset damage and maintenance practices includes:

- Influence of changes in material properties on observed damage

- Optimisation of wheelset maintenance to reduce whole-system costs

- Investigating the influence of route and vehicle design and maintenance policy on wheel tread damage

- Assessment of alternative wheel profiles, considering both whole-system costs and running safety

- Categorisation of wheel damage mechanisms to improve identification and selection of appropriate mitigation

This presentation provides an overview of some of these research areas
