AUTOMATIC PRELIMINARY INSPECTION OF THE APPEARANCE OF RAIL SURFACE EDDY CURRENTS

Description of a new method for reliable detection of only those defects which are serious enough to cause rails to be rejected. The method adopted is based on the use of eddy currents. The test apparatus used in 1977 when the method was developed is described together with the results obtained. The process currently being worked on should ultimately lead to the development of a large-scale welding complex.
