The article discusses a research program designed to help develop a preventive-gradual grinding strategy that offers fast results, including substantial savings, without significant budget increases. The preventive-gradual approach incorporates the type of light, but frequent on-pass grinding associated with preventive grinding, but with additional metal removed with each pass, a method only feasible with today's modern, high production grinding equipment. The process allows corrective and maintenance work to occur from the cumulative grinding effort, and transitions the rail to the desired profile and crack-free state on a gradual basis.
