Vibration-based condition monitoring is a powerful tool for remotely assessing the quality of railway components. Due to its design, railway crossings suffer from faster degradation, because of the transition from stock rail onto the needle. Since this is also a repetitive load, a small amount of wear will increase the degradation. Measuring...

This paper presents an analysis of the transient contact solutions of wheel-rail frictional rolling impacts calculated by an explicit finite element model of the wheel-insulated rail joint (IRJ) dynamic interaction. The ability of the model to simulate the dynamic behavior of an IRJ has been validated against a comprehensive field measurement in...

This paper describes an approach for characterizing the dynamic behavior of the vehicle/track interaction at railway crossings. In the approach, we integrate in situ axle box acceleration (ABA) measurements with roving-accelerometer hammer tests to evaluate the influence of train speed, train moving direction (facing and trailing directions),...

In this paper, we present a method for evaluating the performance of railway crossing rails after long-term service. The method includes 1) 3D profile and hardness measurements; 2) finite element simulation of wheel/rail interaction; and 3) numerical prediction of rail degradation. We conducted a case study on a crossing that had been in service...
