Wheel Flange Angle for Passenger Equipment
This standard defines the minimum flange angle and the minimum length of surface on the flange over which the angle must be maintained. These wheel flange parameters are important in reducing the risk of low-speed wheel-climb derailments. This standard also provides drawings of wheel profiles that are compliant with its requirements.
