This paper provides a method for addressing surface crack growth in railway wheels, taking into account rail and brake blocks effects. finite element analysis (FEA) using the J-integral crack tip parameter has been employed to study 3-D semi elliptical crack growth in the railway wheel with strain hardening property, subjected to fatigue loading due to axle load, rail-wheel contact forces, motive torque, brake blocks pressure, friction and its resulting thermal loads of braking.
