INFLUENCE OF GLAZED FROST AND HOAR FROST ON THE INSTALLATIONS AND ELECTRIC MOTIVE POWER UNITS. DE-ICING TESTS ON OVERHEAD CONTACT SYSTEMS
The present Report constitutes the final report for Question A59. It first contains a summary of the results of the three other Interim Reports. Next, it gives the results of the tests carried out regarding the treatment of overhead contact systems with protective coatings and de-icing by means of the generation of mechanical vibrations. In addition, the report describes the results of various service trials carried out by the A59 Specialists Committee during several winters. A special section has been devoted to the description of the various electric heating methods developed for the de-icing of overhead contact systems and the mechanical methods applied by the FS and the SZD. Finally, in the conclusions and recommendations, all the studies of the A59 Specialists Committee, including the former ones, are taken into account. As the present report constitutes the final report for Question A59, a brief survey of the contents of the previous Interim Reports is given in Section 1.
