WHEEL/RAIL ADHESION-BOUNDARY LUBRICATION BY OILY FLUIDS

The observed variations in wheel/rail adhesion on dry rails are most readily associated with changes in the quantity of oil on the surface. Chemical changes have little influence in comparison. Ambient humidity has a noticeable effect such that significantly higher wheel/rail adhesion is encountered on most rails in dry air conditions.
