The report describes the types of wear of the rails and their wear limits. There is a review made of the devices and software products for detereming the wear of the rails in the modern railway system. It is shown a simulation model with a different geometry type of track and the wear on interaction ”wheel–rail“ is examined in the conventional rail system. The main aim of the study is to analyze the worn profile of the rails when passing a fixed number of load cycles. The application of software simulation provides an opportunity for a complex examination on interaction ”wheel–rail“ in practice.
