PREVENTION AND CURE OF RAIL CORRUGATION

The author has discovered that corrugation is a function of track modulus and wheel loading. There is a critical range of shear and compressive stress within which rail corrugation takes places but below or above this range the phenomenon is absent, possibly because wear particles are either not generated or they are removed altogether. Not only will correct matching of track modulus, to axleloads carried avoid generation, but elimination of a mismatch will also cause existing corrugation to disappear without the need for grinding.
