    Wheel(Sharin,British: wheel) Is(I.e. Ofring[1].under the vehicleRoundwith an object ofaroundrotationThen,groundintended to allow easy movement over[2].


    Used to move cars and vehicles with little force.

    The wheel is the oldest and most importantinventionIt is said to carry heavy objectsSledgeand put it underAroundis believed to have evolved fromEventually, the rollers were fixed under the sled, and the axle and the rotating part were separated, resulting in the current shape.[3].

    Without wheels, you have to 1. move the object while lifting it, or 2. push or pull the object while it is in contact with the ground or floor. In the case of 1, a large force is required to lift (continue to lift). In the case of 2.sliding frictionYou will have to push or pull with more force.

    On the other hand, the friction acting on the wheel is "Rolling friction, which issliding frictionIt is much smaller than , and can be moved by simply pushing (pulling) it with a much smaller force.

    For example, even a standard-sized car (generally weighing more than 1 ton) has wheels and the brakes are released.If it didn't have wheels, one man wouldn't be able to lift and move a ton.Also, a 1-ton iron box without wheels on normal ground cannot be pushed or pulled by a single man.

    In addition, the axle is passed through the disk-shaped plate wheel.rotationThe structure that allows(I.e. OfinventionIt is said to be one of the greatest of all.

(In this article, there are places that only refer to hard parts.)

    The katakana notation of Wheel varies depending on the industry, and it is called "Wheel" for automobiles and motorcycles, and "Wheel" for skateboards and roller skates.american mini carHotWheels (trademark of miniature car)is called "Hot Wheels" or "Hot Wheels" due to fluctuations due to distributors in Japan.

    Origin and propagation

    The origin of the wheel is ancientMesopotamia OfSumeriansIn[5], as a time (in one theory)3500 BCbe killed[5].Sumerian wheels are made of woodDiskTowas inserted[5].As for the time of invention, MesopotamiaUbaid periodFrom the ruins ofPotter's wheelWheels developed from[6]There are several theories, such as a wheel excavated in Slovenian ruins around 3100 BC.[6].

    In addition, Poland's personal web page says ""WheeledVehicle(Here is a four-wheeled vehicle with two axles.)[Needs verification]``believed'' to be around 3500 BC from southern Poland. Bronocice pot It was claimed that it was painted in[7].

    According to the new edition of Gwynne Dyer's book War (2004), the wheel was built in the 4th millennium BCEurope,Southwest AsiaSpread to3th millennium BCToIndus civilizationIt is said that it reached up toChugokuThen around 1200 BC they used wheelstankis known to have existed[8].On the other hand, according to Barbieri-Low (2000), there were wheeled vehicles in China around 2000 BC.

    For wheels to become widely used, flat道路was needed[18].On bumpy roads, it is easier for humans to carry the load on their backs.Therefore, in undeveloped areas without flat roads, wheels were not used as a means of transportation until the turn of the 20th century.in JapanHeian periodToOx cartWas used,HeianjingIt was spread only in flatland urban areas such as.In rural areas, cargo is carried on the backs of oxen and horses.Dachin-umakasewas common, butEdo PeriodWhen entering, it depends on human powerDaihachi car,beka caralso came to be used[19].Carriage,rickshawIt was after the Meiji era when the road network was developed.

    evolution of the wheel

    Early wheels were wooden discs with a hole in the center for the axle.woodDue to the nature of wood, a horizontally sliced ​​tree trunk lacks strength, and a round board cut vertically was necessary.If one tree did not have enough wood to make a wheel, three half-moon boards were made and joined together to form a wheel.[20].

    soften the impact from the groundspokeAs for the invention of a wheel, the earliest known example isAndronovo culturedated to around 2000 B.C.[21].Shortly after thatCaucasusFor three centuries local equestrian tribes used spokes to make wheelsChariotcan now be pulled by horses.they also ventured into地中海interacted with the people ofCelticwas found on the outside of a chariot wheel in the 1st millennium BCbegan to wind.

    19st centuryA change came to the wheels when I entered.steam locomotiveWith the invention of the iron wheels to support the weight,Trainetc. has come to be used.

    1870Around the time, the pneumaticタ イ ヤand wire spoke wheels were invented[22].This first began to develop around that timeBicycleIt began to spread from the end of the 19th century after being used inAutomobile, which greatly improved the performance of the wheels.

    The invention of the wheel is not a means of transportationTechnologyIt was also important to the general public.for example,Water mill,gear(Antikythera mechanismreference),spinning wheel,Astrolabe,Torquetumetc. are closely related to wheels.More recently,propeller,Jet engine,Flywheel(Gyroscope),Turbineetc. developed with the wheel as a basic element.

    Structure and function

    A wheel is a machine (mechanism) that allows an object to move efficiently along the earth's surface when there is a force pushing the object against the earth's surface.

    with wheelsare always used in combination, either with a wheel rotating about an axle, or with an axle rotating (with the wheel) within a body.Both are mechanically the same.

    The reason why the drag force when using wheels and axles is less than when simply dragging an object can be explained as follows (friction):

    • The normal forces on the frictional contact areas are the same.
    • When the wheel rotates once due to one rotation of the shaft, the friction distance corresponding to the outer circumference of the shaft causes the wheel to advance by the outer circumference of the wheel, which greatly reduces the distance in which friction occurs.
    • Since the frictional contact surfaces are all within the mechanism, the coefficient of friction can be much lower than with ground friction.

    to reduce friction on friction surfacesbearingis used.The simplest and oldest bearings were simply round holes through which shafts were passed (Plain bearing).


    • 100 kg 10 m Suppose you pull.frictioncoefficient μ = 0.5 andvertical forceIs 981 N will be donework(NeededEnergy) is “work = force × distance”, so 981 × 0.5 × 10 = 4905 Jules.
    • Now attach four wheels to the same object. The normal forces between the four wheels and the axle are the same (in total) as before, 4 N.Assuming that the wheel and shaft are made of wood, the coefficient of friction is μ = 0.25.of wheelsDiameteris 1000 mm and the shaft diameter is 50 mm.If this is moved by 10 m, the distance that the friction surface rubs is 0.5 m.So the work done is 981 × 0.25 × 0.5 = 123 Joules.Therefore, it is 1/40 of the case of directly dragging an object.

    Additional energy is lost on wheel contact with the ground.This is mainly deformation loss,Rolling resistanceCalled.

    If the wheel diameter is large enough for the unevenness of the ground, it also has the advantage of being able to move easily over uneven ground.

    A wheel by itself is not a machine, butand bearings,WheelsetTo saySimple machinebecome.A vehicle wheel is also an example of a wheelset.

    In terms of design classification, it is classified into the following shapes[23].

    • Radial - The inner rim dish of the wheel is radial[23]
    • Spiral - Spiral on the inner rim dish of the wheel[23]
    • Disc-like - The inner dish of the wheel rim is flat and plate-like[23]
    • Mesh - Mesh on the inner rim dish of the wheel[23]

    Mounting standard

    In general, there are many bolts and nuts specifications such as 4 holes and 5 holes.Racing car,Porsche,Ferrari,Lamborghini,McLarenAmong such things, only a few supermarketssports car,Hyper carcan change tires quicklycenter lockThere are also specifications.

    Size notation, standard

    For example, if it is written as "16 x 7J 5H PCD100 +38"

    • "16" outer diameter ... 16inch
      • The diameter of the bead bearing surface is expressed in inches.
    • “7” Rim Width…7”
    • "J"Flangeshape.Classified by the height from the rim surface to the top of the flange, the thickness of the flange, and the radius of the bead contact surface of the flange.
      • Typical shape for passenger cars (height/thickness/radius in mm)
        B = 14.0/10/7.5
        JJ = 18.0 / 13.0 / 9.0
      • common shape on trucks[24]
        B, F, E, GS, J, JJ, K, S, SW, SWA, T, V
      • General shape for special automobiles and agricultural machinery[25]
        A, B, D, E, F, G, I, J, JA, JJ, K, LB, MT, P, R, S, SP, SW, TG, V, W, WI
      • common shape on bikes
        J, K, MT, W *Divided Type rim if DT is added after shape symbol
      • common shape on bicycles
        B/E, H/E, W/O
      • Other
        L etc.
    Since there are many "J" in the flange shape of aluminum wheels for passenger cars, this symbol, which is often seen, is misunderstood as a unit of rim width. Calling it a wide wheel or saying "J number is large" for a wide wheel are all misuses.
    • "5H" mounting bolt holes... 5 holes 3 holes to 12 are used.Vehicles with greater weight and loads have more bolts and larger diameters.
    • "PCD"Mounting hole diameter…100 mm
      • "PCD" stands for "Pitch Circle Diameter". (100 mm, 110 mm, 114.3 mm (4.5 inches) are common for Japanese passenger cars, and 101.6 mm (4 inches) for foreign cars. There are also multi-PCD wheels that support multiple diameters.)
    • "+" inset (formerly known as plus offset in Japan).Distance from the hub surface to the center of the rim (tire width): 38 mm in the positive direction (inside the vehicle). Some manufacturers write it as ET (the unit is mm, which is an abbreviation for German "Einpresstiefe" and is synonymous with English Offset).
      • Inset is when the center of the rim is inside the hub surface, and outset is when the center of the rim is outside the hub surface.

    various wheels

    Where wheels are good, where they are bad

    Wheels are widely used as a way to move things.However, there are places it is suitable (places it is good at) and places it is not suitable (places it is not good at).

    pavementsurface,TrainThe top surface of the wheel, hard ground, flat and smooth floor, etc. roll well and are suitable for wheels.

    Places where wheels are not suitable are snowy fields (snowy areas),湿 地・ ・DesertA road with obstacles, etc.

    Some of the things that are used instead of wheels in places where wheels are not good are as follows.

    wheel as a symbol

    on the wheelsCulturalThere is also a meaning,Chakra,Reincarnation,陰陽There is also an aspect of a mysterious metaphor of cycles and regular repetition.Therefore, the terrain is steep and unsuitable,TibetOnce upon a time, vehicles with wheels were forbidden.

    The winged wheel is a symbol of progress,Coat of arms of Panama, Ohio State Highway Patrol It can be seen in various scenes such as the logo of

    Wheels with spokes (Chariot) appeared in the Middle Bronze Age and came to symbolize a kind of authority.Sun cross ThePrimitive religionThis is often seen inSun godIt is said to represent the technological innovation that came to ride a chariot.
