Guidelines for Rail Base Inspection and Rail Condemnation Limits for Corrosion Induced Material Loss

Transportation Technology Center, Inc., has studied the causes and effects of corrosion on rail base. Phase I of this project covered several topics including finite modeling, corrosive environment, effects of corrosion on microstructure, and corrosion prevention. In this phase, Phase II, the maximum allowable material loss in the rail base was assessed.
