ABSTRACT
The paper deals with a finite element analysis about the state of stress and deformation in a driving railway axle or shaft. The stress - displacement analysis has been performed with the Algor and Ansys softwares, two powerful finite element analysis tools. There were especially analyzed the freeting areas between the axle and the driving gear or the rolling wheels and the contact areas between the rolling wheels and the rail.
