When rail fasteners are loosened, the rail bends because of the accumulations of deformations caused by stress, workhardening or unevenness of stress. The resultant bend of a rail is the result of the nature of the rail as in the differences between a common or quenched rail. Residual stresses in rail tend to decrease which finally lead to rail deformation as a result of the loss of equilibrium of the forces.
