STRAY CURRENT CORROSION DUE TO THE PROPOSED NORTH-EAST TRAMWAY

This report which was prepared for the South Australian Department of Transport concerns conditions affecting currents along proposed N-E tram-line. Their effects on stray current are estimated by comparison with the Glenelg tram-line. This is done using two different variables: (1) relative energy required to move the traffic, and (II) relative currents at the peak traffic demand. The ratios are then applied to the cost (to the utilities) of stray current corrosion due to the Glenelg tram-line determined in a previous study.
