Using the finite element parametric quadratic programming method, computation of Elastic and Elastic-plastic rolling contact problems between wheel and rail is carried out for various cases such as different wheel diameters, different axle loads, different tractive force and different friction factors. The contact states and the contact internal force between wheel and rail are obtained, and their changing laws corresponding with every above-mentioned parameter are analyzed in this paper.
