Abstract

THE stresses imposed on wheels during construction are usually not inconsiderable, and the loads, borne by them later, add greatly to the stress intensities. Although wheels are in universal use, comparatively little appears to be known of the stress distributions in them, although long practical experience has enabled constructors to satisfy exacting modern conditions.
