STUDY ON CONTACT ROLLING FATIGUE OF RAILS. (1ST REPORT, DEVELOPMENT OF HIGH SPEED RAIL TESTING MACHINE)

The high speed rail testing machine was developed to simulate the Shinkansen traffic condition in Japan, especially to contact rolling problems between rail and wheel in a laboratory. This machine is of a unique type and principally consists of a circular rail and two wheels, which contact each other. Test piece: actual bent rail, parent metal and welds. Wheel: two actual wheels, easily changeable and hydraulically-operated, running in one direction. Radial load: applied by a simple mechanism with large loading capacity using centrifugal force and oil pressure, and easily variable. Thrust load: generated by vertical oscillation of rotor by oil pressure actuator. Driving system: a wheel driven by oil pressure motor. Brake: dc motor brake and oil pressure brake. Pitch of rail sleeper arrangement; 580 mm. Medium: air, fresh water and sea water. (Edited author abstract)
