Research on Wear Rate and Mechanical Properties of Brake Sabots (Shoes) Used in Railway Rolling Stocks
Dr. Ahmet Akkus, Mukadder Ye─čin

Abstract
In this work, wear resistances, wear rates, friction forces and coefficients of pig-iron, composite and sintered sabots (brake shoes) used in self-propelled or pulled transportation equipment as well as their hardness-density, fracturing energies and chemical compositions, have been studied experimentally. Based on the assessment of the wear rates and manufacturing costs, composite sabot has been determined as the most feasible sabot material.
