Form formula (3) can be seen clearly that the lateral offset of wheelset is proportional to the wheel diameter difference, and is inversely related to the wheel tread equivalent conicity. The bigger the wheel diameter difference, the greater the wheel/rail longitudinal creep force, so is the wheelset yaw angle.

Goodall and Iwnicki proposed a new method to assess the vehicle stability which mainly refers to the equivalent conicity between the wheel and rail contact [3].
