QUALITY OF RAILS AND MEANS OF GUARANTEEING IT. TESTS WITH APPARATUS FOR THE CONTINUOUS EXAMINATION OF RAILS IN THE TRACK

Report discusses the use of high speed rail inspection equipment, the ways in which joint operation of such vehicles would be practical. The amount of track to be inspected, the frequency of inspection and geographic considerations are determinants of the practicality of joint ownership and operation. Also a comparison of the Teledetector, the Spema, and the DB ultra-sonic rail fault coach is made over identical track. A discussion of rail flaws and their classification is included.
