TRIBOLOGIC PROCESSES BETWEEN WHEEL AND RAIL

TRIBOLOGISCHE VORGAENGE ZWISCHEN RAD UND SCHIENE

For almost 150 years the railway wheel has been rolling over the tracks of the world and even now we have yet to discover the last detail secrets of the interplay between wheel and rail. A research programme initiated and supported by the Federal Ministry of Research and Technology (BMFT) is now in progress with the aim of investigating the wheel-on-rail phenomena and thus obtaining the essential knowledge for the entry into the high-speed era. In his article, however, the author shows how diverse and far-reaching are the problems to be mastered before the new railway age is ushered in.
