Real-time Rail–wheel Wear Damage Control

This paper presents the performance of a real-time rail-wheel wear damage control system with respect to different operation conditions. In particular, an investigation into the wear growth rate control under changing wheel-rail friction conditions and different operation speeds is performed. Simulation using a mathematical model considering longitudinal-vertical-pitch dynamics of a locomotive running on straight tracks shows that the proposed controller can effectively reduce the rail-wheel wear damage by limiting mass loss rate, particularly during acceleration under low and medium speeds.
