The geometric parameters between wheel and rail change wheel/rail contact geometry characteristics, and this influence dynamic behavior of rolling stock. So, the selections of optimum geometric parameters between wheel and rail is important for planning of railway system. In this study, we have analyzed the influence of geometric parameters like wheel flange-back distance, gage, and rail inclination on the equivalent conicity relating to dynamic behavior. The analyses show the following results. The widening of wheel flange-back distanc, the decrement of gage increase the equivalent conicity and the increment of rail inclination show the sharp change of the equivalent conicity.
