A target-oriented method for the design of railway wheel profiles is presented. The target chosen is the rolling radii difference function which plays an important role in the dynamics of railway vehicles especially for high speed performances. A computer program based on this method has also been developed and is validated by way of examples in which wheel profiles LMA, S1002G and XP55 are investigated.
