DEVELOPMENT OF AN INNER BRACING FOR SWITCH STOCK RAILS ON THE GERMAN FEDERAL RAILWAY

ENTWICKLUNG EINER INNEREN BACKENSCHIENEN-VERSPANNUNG FUER WEICHEN DER DEUSTCHEN BUNDESBAHN

The stock rails of switches have hitherto always had outside bracings of various designs, but with increasing speeds, shorter intervals between trains, higher axle loadings and hence greater stresses on the switches, these outside and indirect-acting supports are no longer adequate. The Author describes the development of an inner bracing which with the aid of a specially-designed tension piece provides a flexible and permanently force-locking connection. Details of its design, basis of calculation, and testing by the German Federal Railway are given.
