How to provide both rotational and translational velocity to a wheel?

So, I was trying to simulate the stress induced due to a train wheel with a flat of a certain length on its circumference. Something like shown below:-

Initially I had tried to give the initial velocity and then found out the radial distance between the point of contact and then entered the angular velocity. I did this to reduce the time it takes for the wheel to reach the stable non slip rolling velocity.

But, is there a way to make the wheel rotate without slipping from the get go. This is an issue for me as I have to analyse the impact force for different velocities of the wheel.
