SHELLY RAIL INVESTIGATION--RESULTS OF ROLLING-LOAD AND SLOW-BEND TESTS

The S-15 series was initiated to evaluate rail heat treated by the flame-hardening process. Rolling-load test results for specimens S-15A through S-15W were reported last year and are included in this report for information. Specimens S-15W, S-15X, S-15E-2 and S-15F-2 are all secondhand 132-lb head-free rail heat treated to 3/16 in depth. Specimens S-15G-2 and S-15H-2 were not heat treated (secondhand 132-lb head-free rail) and used as control samples. The S-16 series was initiated to evaluate rail heat treated by the Linde process. During this period there were no slow bend tests.
