Title:Tests of two wear wheels 33 and 33 1/2 inch cast steel wheels for Griffin Wheel Company Chicago Illinois
Author(s):Wetenkamp, H.R.
Subject(s):Wear Wheels
Cast Steel Wheels
Abstract:Eight new wheels, supplied by the Chicago Plant of the Griffin Wheel Company were received and subjected to standard drag and stop tests. The results of the stop tests give some measure of the resistance of the wheels to thermal cracking. The drag tests were used to measure the build up of strain in the wheel and to induce residual stresses in the wheel that are somewhat similar to the stresses that might be build up in service.
