tapered profile. The reason, to avoid slippage in the
turns. The inner wheel rolls on the smaller diameter, the
outer wheel rolls on the -closer to the flange- larger
diameter part of the wheel. High speed trains have "more
flat" profile than trains running on smaller radius turns.
The actual profile is very sophisticated, it compensates
for the projected wear too.
