The aim of this document is to define a design assessment procedure of a forged and rolled monobloc
wheel (RST). This assessment is carried out before the wheel is commissioned. This document describes,
in particular, the assessment to be performed in order to use wheels on a European network which, in
addition, have quality requirements in conformity with those defined in EN 13262.
This assessment requires that the conditions of use for the wheel are defined and this standard provides
