1. Optimisation of Railway Switches and Crossings
Sammanfattning : Methods for simulation-based optimisation of the design of railway turnouts (switches & crossings, S&C) are developed and demonstrated. Building on knowledge of dynamic wheel–rail interaction in turnouts, it is investigated how rail profile degradation can be reduced by the optimisation of geometry and component stiffness of the track superstructure.

2. Towards Optimization of Railway Turnouts
Sammanfattning : The turnout (Switch & Crossing) is a vital component in railway networks as it provides flexibility to traffic operation by allowing trains to switch between tracks. The flexibility comes at a cost as the common lack of a transition curve in the diverging route together with the variation and discontinuities in rail profiles result in higher rail degradation rates than in regular track.

3. Towards Model-Based Condition Monitoring of Railway Switches and Crossings
Sammanfattning : Railway switches and crossings (S&C, turnouts) connect different track sections and create a railway network by allowing for trains to change between tracks. This functionality comes at a cost as the load-inducing rail discontinuities in the switch and crossing panels cause much higher degradation rates for S&C compared to regular plain line track.

4. Simulation of track settlement in railway turnouts-An iterative approach
Sammanfattning : In this thesis, a methodology for simulation of track settlement in railway turnouts (switches andcrossings, S&C) is presented. The methodology predicts the accumulated settlement for a given setof traffic loads using an iterative and cross-disciplinary procedure. LÄS MER
5. Wheel–Rail Impact Loads and Track Settlement in Railway Crossings
Sammanfattning : Turnouts (Switches & Crossings, S&C) are critical components of a railway track requiring regular maintenance and generating high life cycle costs. A main driver for the high maintenance costs is the need to repair and replace switch rails and crossings as these components are subjected to a severe load environment. LÄS MER
