BEHAVIOUR OF THE METAL OF THE RAILS UNDER THE REPEATED ACTION OF THE WHEELS--RESIDUAL LONGITUDINAL STRESSES IN THE RAIL (PART 1)
The residual stresses result: from heat effects during the cooling of the rail after it leaves the rolling mill; from trimming, after rolling in the vertical and horizontal directions; and, from the cold rolling of the top surface of the rail by the passage of loads. The object of this report is: to lay down a method for the determination of residual stresses, and to supply the results obtained by applying such a method in some special cases.
