  2. 2. Damage and thermally induced defects in railway materials

    Author : Casey Jessop; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY;

    Abstract : A major concern for the railway industry today is the problem of rolling contact fatigue (RCF) damage in wheels and rails as a result of increased traffic, accelerations, and loading conditions. The wheel/rail contact condition that occurs in railway applications is complex, and it is essential to understand the associated damage from combined mechanical and thermal loadings in order to predict component life and develop appropriate maintenance systems.
