A STUDY OF THE MAGNETISATION OF RAILS

It has been noted that rail magnetisation could have a serious effect on arc welding rails. The article describes the study of this phenomenon in order to find a solution. It has been seen that the main cause was the position of the rails in relation to the earth's magnetic field. It would not seem that types of traction, the volume of traffic, rail age, track circuit current, nearness of high voltage cables have any noticeable effect.
