DEVELOPMENT OF FATIGUE CRITERIA: APPLICATION IN THE CASE OF RAILS

EVOLUTION DES CRITERES DE FATIGUE: APPLICATION AU CAS DES RAILS

The article summarises fifteen years' work of particular complexity on the distribution of stresses in rails according to a number of parameters such as the diameter and weight of the wheels, and on the resulting data concerning the fatigue strength of known rail steels. A criterion is given for the use of different types of steel, which is represented by a graph. Other graphs show stress cycles under different conditions.
