MAINTENANCE CYCLES FOR WAGONS AND COACHES AT THE DR

INSTANDHALTUNGSZYKLEN FUER GUETER - UND REISEZUGWAGEN DER DR

The research and development department for coaches and wagons at the DR has just carried out a piece of work on "Maintenance cycles for wagons and coaches". The author deals with the principles for establishing maintenances cycles which lie behind optimum cycle definition. These involve measurement of wear on structural parts and elements, the limits of service and machining dimensions and assessment of damage in the case of incidental repairs. Examination shows that, even where maintenance cycles are extended, the increase in incident repairs is minimal since most damage is caused by accidental occurrences.
