Wheel rims for industrial vehicles: comparative experimental analyses
by Luigi Solazzi
International Journal of Heavy Vehicle Systems (IJHVS), Vol. 18, No. 2, 2011

Abstract: This work presents the results of a series of experimental analyses intended to define two different types of wheel rim for industrial vehicles. The main tests carried out were the following: testing on a rotating bending machine; testing on a rolling machine; in the field, namely a series of experiments on wheel rims placed on a hydraulic dump hoist that was subjected to defined loading conditions. These analyses revealed that the extent and nature of the stress on the wheel rims imposed by the three tests were not particularly correlated. The axial and radial rigidity of the rims meant that certain tests stressed one wheel rim more than another.
