DEVELOPMENT OF FATIGUE CRITERIA: APPLICATIONS IN THE CASE OF RAILS

A criterion for the use of steels gives, for a given type of steel and a particular rail, the maximum stresses that the metal will withstand without fatigue cracks appearing. The authors describe a physical model and a calculation method with which such a criterion may be obtained. Their article refers closely to the work of the ORE C 53 Specialists Committee. They give several examples of the plotting of stresses at different depths in a U 50 rail created by a wheel of a given weight under a given load.
