METALLURGICAL EXAMINATION AND PHYSICAL TEST RESULTS OF CHROMIUM AND MANGANESE--VANADIUM ALLOY RAIL STEEL INVESTIGATION

This report contains the results of metallurgical examinations and laboratory accelerated testing of samples of chromium and manganese-vanadium rail to determine the quality and strength of these types of rail steel. The rail samples, for purposes of this investigation, of both types of rail were furnished to the AAR Technical Center by the Canadian Pacific Limited. The investigation consisted of rolling-load tests, drop tests, slow bend tests, physical property determinations, charpy impact tests, chemical analysis, hardness surveys and macroscopic and microscopic examinations conducted at the AAR Technical Center, Chicago.
