Project in Wheel-Trace Wear Supported by CRRC

Posted on February 1, 2017 by

China Railway Rolling Stock Corporation (CRRC) has funded for our project “Wheel-Track Wear Indicators, Calculation and Testing Methods for Heavy-Haul Freight Cars.” This one-year project ($132k) will tackle fundamental and technical challenges in evaluating and predicting wheel-track wear for heavy-haul freight cars.

Also, we are hiring graduate research assistants for this project! Experiences in simulation, dynamics, and wear are preferred. Please inquire at <chshao AT illinois DOT edu>.
