ON THE ANALYSIS OF RAIL SWITCH INTERLOCK

ANALIZA KONSTRUKCJI ZAMKNIECIA NASTAWCZEGO ZWROTNICY

Performance of a sliding interlock in the rail track switch is analyzed theoretically. The friction forces in the lock during switching are assessed. Imperfect lock is shown to appreciably increase the switching resistance. Reasons for this effect are outlined. The analysis can constitute a starting point to perform tests on both current and improved locks.
