1. Squat defects and rolling contact fatigue clusters - Numerical investigations of rail and wheel deterioration mechanisms
Sammanfattning : Squat defects, a type of localised rolling contact fatigue damage appearing on rail surfaces with rail break as an ultimate consequence, have concerned infrastructure managers for the last couple of decades. In recent years similar types of defects—so-called studs—that are visually resembling squats, have started to appear. LÄS MER
2. Modelling of cyclic and viscous behaviour of thermomechanically loaded pearlitic steels; Application to tread braked railway wheels
Sammanfattning : In service, railway wheel and rail materials are subjected to high stresses and, in some cases, elevated temperatures. The high stresses are caused by the rolling contact between wheel and rail. Furthermore, heat generated from tread braking and/or sliding between wheel and rail gives additional stress due to constrained thermal expansion. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Despite signiﬁcant eﬀorts throughout the last decades, the mechanisms behind the formation of squats — a form of rolling contact fatigue (RCF) damage in rails — are not fully understood. Proposed causes of initiation involve, but are not limited to, small initial rail surface irregularities which yield high contact stresses, rail corrugation and varying friction conditions. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : 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.
