This contribution deals with reliability of railway wheels as influenced by the occurrence of impaired limiting material strength. Results are presented of material investigation, experimental and computational modelling of crack propagation. The presented computational prediction of the direction of propagation of primary cracks differing in their length and position under various operation conditions is entirely original.
