DAMAGE ON RAILS AND SWITCHES

An investigation of the damage on railroad rails and switches shows that the most frequent damages are fatigue fractures in the form of shelling of inner edges and transverse fractures. Since the conventional high-strength rails are no longer adequate for tracks subjected to great stresses, new special-quality rails with a yield strength greater than 600 N/sq mm were developed and have already been used with success.
