TEST FOR WHEEL BURNS OF RAILS BY D-TYPE AC LOCOMOTIVES

This test was intended to analyse the process of wheel burn formation. In the gradient traction test of an ED 75 AC locomotive, on the Kagoshima line, wheel slip was forced to occur by various operating conditions, and the wheel burns of rails were examined. It is the object of this test to find an optimum operation method for heavy trains and to improve the practical adhesive capacity as a preventive measure of wheel slip, by the analysis of adhesion on various rail conditions.
