Keywords: Continuous Welded Rail, Rail Joints, Adhesive Bonding, Rail Joint Properties, Joint Defects
Abstract: The performance of track structures depends greatly on the integrity of the connections between rail sections. Because the majority of service and detected rail failures occur at...
Keywords: Rail, Cracks, Fatigue Crack Propagation, Mechanical Properties, Fractography
Abstract: In order to establish safe inspection periods of railroad rails information on fatigue crack growth rates is required. These data should come from a sufficiently large sample of...
