CORRUGATION AND PITTING OF ROLLING SURFACES - ARE THEY CONTINGENT UPON ULTRASONICS?

This article is an abridged version of essay number 28/1973 held in the Archiv fuer Eisenbahntechnik. Rail corrugations, which were a familiar phenomenon in the 1890's and similar periodic forms of wear occur in other rolling contact combinations. An attempt is made in this paper to explain these manifestations. It is suggested in conclusion that it would appear that troublesome corrugations and perhaps damaging pitting could be avoided if, besides the attenuation of low-frequency oscillations, a means could be found to prevent the agitation and propagation of intensive ultrasonic fields within the area of the running surfaces.
