|English term or phrase: wheel web|
|Rolling does not practically affect the ***wheel web*** profile unless the web is not symmetrical on the rolling axis, such as in the case of "corrugated" ***wheel webs.***|
immer noch der gleiche Text über passierende Schienenfahrzeuge ...
Not a term usually used in railway parlance, this is actually the wheel centre, or the disc onto which the wheel tyre is shrunk - unless you are talking one-piece wheels, which is not the case here, it seems. Beware, though; the axle or hub is located in the centre of the wheel centre...
The wheel centre is often cast in the form of a disc, with a hole for the axle in the middle.
Check for these terms in the UIC Railway Dictionary.

|Thank you - I'm waiting for the UIC Railway Dictionary to be delivered to me, and will then be able to check most of these terms myself.|
