Title: Friction induced vibrations of a railway wheel considering different damping in the system
Keywords: friction induced vibrations, continuous systems, FEM.

Abstract: A model of railway wheel, considered as a plate, subjected on friction induced vibration is studied in this work using FEM. The model is presented as continuous system and the mass, elastic and damping properties of a real object are taken into account. The friction forces are nonlinear functions of the relative velocity during slipping. Non-stationary process is considered. The problem is solved using Ansys and Matlab Simulink.
