STANDARDISATION OF WAGONS. THE INFLUENCE OF THE STRAIN RATE ON THE YIELD POINT OF STEEL--EFFECT OF REPEATED IMPACTS ON THE YIELD POINT OF THE STEEL
This report describes the execution and analysis of the following tests: Tensile tests with different impact loading rates on test pieces made of St 38-3 and H 52-3 Steels; and Fatigue tests on test pieces made of H 52-3 steel, previously exposed to a given number of impact loads corresponding to a given strain rate. It contains, among other things, findings relating to nature and severity of the experimentally demonstrated influence of the strain rate on the yield point of the above-mentioned materials, which are used in the construction of wagons. The analysed strain rate interval includes the deformation rates occurring during 15 km/h buffing impacts with loaded 4-axled wagons.
