Upcoming Events

ICRI Webinar: Grinding-induced Rolling Contact Fatigue in Rails, October 27th (09:00 Eastern, 14:00 London, 22:00 Tokyo)

Presenters: Carsten Rasmussen, COWI, Denmark

This presentation shows how the grinding process itself can have a negative metallurgical influence on the rails. It is shown how deeper heat affected grinding marks from the grinding process in especially harder rail steel types can lead to RCF cracks. The presentation is based on research results and experiences collected over 12 years by the Danish Railway Manager, Banedanmark with support from the Danish Technical University and the testing company FORCE Technology. During these 12 years the presenter was the engineering technical manager of the rails in Banedanmark.

Meeting Link: will be sent to all ICRI members
