The influence of high temperature due to high adhesion condition on rail damage

Journal Article


Abstract


  • In wheel-rail contact, the locomotive adhesion variable characterizes the capability of the locomotive to convert available friction into traction at the interface. Recently developed AC (Alternating Current) drive induces a higher adhesion level compared to DC (Direct Current) drive. This can significantly affect the wheel-rail contact conditions such as high contact temperature due to the frictional rolling, wear and damage initiation of the rails.
