Sammanfattning : The railway vehicles are an increasing mean of transportation due to, its reduced impact on environment and high level of comfort provided. These reasons have contributed to settle a positive perception of railway traffic into the European society. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Railway structures represent complex mechanical problems involving wave propagation, plastic deformations and material degradation. The wheel-rail contact loads subject the material to repeated cycles of complex stress states resulting in rolling contact fatigue (RCF). LÄS MER
3. Development of new techniques for the numerical modelling of railway track dynamics. Application to rolling noise assessment
Sammanfattning : The numerical modelling is widely employed for the prediction of the railway track dynamic behaviour, which is of utmost importance for the characterisation of the undesired medium-high frequency phenomena, such as corrugation, wheel-out-of-roundness and noise emission. This study is devoted to the improvement of railway track numerical modelling, the efficient resolution of the problem in the time domain and the assessment of rolling noise for different approaches of the track modelling.

Sammanfattning : Since the investigation of wear particles in rail transport started in late-1910s, the high mass concentration of these particles has raised worries among researchers concerned with air quality. However, effective action has yet to be taken because of lack of relevant knowledge. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : The wheel-rail contact is at the core of all research related to vehicle-track interaction. This tiny interface governs the dynamic performance of rail vehicles through the loads it transmits and, like any high stress concentration zone, it is subjected to serious damage phenomena. LÄS MER
