Dynamic optimization of track components to minimize rail corrugation
In this paper, the influence on corrugation of the most significant track parameters has been examined. After this parametric study, the optimization of the track parameters to minimize the undulatory wear growth has been ...
Wheel-rail wear index prediction considering multiple contact patches
This paper shows a new wheel-rail contact model specially suited to obtain wear indexes between wheel and rail when the vehicle negotiates tight curves. The model presented in the paper enables introduction of the two ...
Influence of creep forces on the risk of derailment of railway vehicles
(Taylor & Francis, 2009)
The derailment mechanism in a railway vehicle is a complex mechanical phenomenon which has been, and still is, the subject of intense research activity due to the serious consequences it can entail. Since Nadal deduced his ...
