Rail corrugation: advances in measurement,

01/03/2005  Grinding (or another method of reprofiling) is also the only means of removing an existing corrugation, other than re-railing. In order to reduce the dynamic loads between wheel and rail that give rise to corrugation, it is desirable for grinding to leave as low a level of irregularities on the rail as can sensibly be obtained.

A Method for the Measurement and Efficient

If corrugation removal grinding is required, the specialized software will create (in real-time) dynamic “peak-and-plow” grind patterns utilizing calibrated metal removal equations which estimate the amount of material one grinding stone can remove, based on the instantaneous radius of the rail, grinding motor horsepower, grinder speed, etc. The site specific, dynamic corrugation removal ...

Rail Grinding Types And Practices AGICO Rail

30/10/2020  Corrective grinding refers to the operation of grinding rail after the surface defects are generated. Corrective grinding was prevalent at the birth stage of rail grinding technology. It is mainly carried out to repair rails by removing the severe damage on rail surfaces such as fatigue cracks, corrugation, spalling, plastic flow and other defects.

Effect of rail corrugation on metro interior noise and

15/01/2018  According to the analysis presented in Section 2.1, the interior noise is mainly caused by rail corrugation. Rail grinding is the most direct way to reduce interior noise. Thus, the rails in the test section were grinded. The rail roughness before and after grinding is shown in Fig. 9. The square symbols denote the rail roughness before grinding, and the circles denote the rail roughness after grinding

Refining Approaches to Corrective and Preventive

26/02/2019  Corrective grinding typically implies the application of multiple passes with heavy metal removal at lower speeds to restore the rail shape and/or surface to acceptable conditions; preventive grinding typically implies the application of fewer passes with less metal removal at higher grinding speeds to catch degrading surface and/or profile conditions on a more frequent basis before

“Peak-and-plow” corrugation removal can require multiple passes depending upon the depth of the measured corrugation as well as the type of grinder (available horsepower) and the number of stones present on the grinder being utilized. The above methodology is typically applied whenever corrugation removal is required and since the grind patterns are static, significant extraneous metal removal can occur both during corrugation

22/09/2020  Rail grinders were developed to increase the lifespan of the tracks being serviced for rail corrugation. Rail grinding is a process that is done to stop the deformation due to use and friction on railroad tracks by removing deformations and corrosion.[1] Railroad tracks that experience continual use are more likely to experience corrugation and overall wear. Rail grinders are used to grind the tracks

Specification and Documentation of Rail Grinding

While the recording frequency is not specified, it is typically done once per grinding shift. Metal removal also is not specified. The typical metal removal rates are 0.3mm for new rail, and 0.2mm for cyclical preventive grinding programs. Metal removal rates for corrugation removal typically are 0.1mm below the corrugation troughs. Metal removal documentation, if required, must be provided at five locations at

In the early days of rail grinding, railroads ground a 2-inch-wide running band in the center of the rail head to remove corrugations. While this worked reasonably well, the grinding motors in early grinders were fixed in orientation. This type of grinding left the rail head flat. Rail life was extended, but plastic flow was not removed and cracks remained where the valleys of the corrugations had not been removed.

SUMMARY The process of rail grinding arose from the need to address rail corrugation, the most pressing form of rail damage in the 1960s and 1970s. With corrugation under control, grinding continued to evolve as different techniques for treating rolling contact fatigue were tried. Initially applied to remove the worst of a visibly cracked and shelled rail surface using heavy, multiple passes, grinding is now

EP0393540A2 - Process for galvanically coating of

The essence of the proposed process for electroplating surface segments situated on the surface of an object is that the surface of the object (1) is first provided by mechanical means with a corrugation or knurling (3, 4) which is coated with an insulating material (6). Exposed surface segments (7) are then produced by stripping the surface and these are electroplated. The insulating material in between is then removed. This makes it possible, for example, in the case of grinding
