A CONTRIBUTION TO THE PROBLEM OF RAIL CORRUGATION FORMATION

EIN BEITRAG ZUM PROBLEM DER ENTSTEHUNG DER SCHIENENRIFFELN

The author describes corrosion due to running and then for the moving wheel in the elastic rail/wheel system gives details of the wear accumulated between, firstly, vertical acceleration from rail vibrations at acoustic frequency and the acceleration in the wheelset due to the load borne and, secondly, that caused by high frequency vibrations in the wheel center. He describes how in certain spots there is rhythmical polishing followed by the formulation of martensite and he considers that this has a negative effect on the likelihood of natural prevention of rail corrugation. He suggests steps to deal with this problem and explains certain aspects of how rail corrugation occurs and its frequency.
