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...

By considering real wheel and track geometry and structures, as well as their coupled interaction, an explicit finite element method is applied to simulate the transition of wheel–rail rolling from single-point tread contact to two-point tread-flange contact. The evolutions of the contact position, stress magnitude and direction, adhesion–slip...

This paper explores the use of pantograph-catenary contact force (PCCF) for monitoring of the current collection quality and detection of anomalies in the interaction between pantograph and catenary. The concept of catenary structure wavelength (CSW) is proposed as the dominant component of PCCF. It describes the signal components caused by the...

The precise mechanism which activates squeal, especially flange squeal has not been fully explained. The complex non-Hertzian contact and the broad-band high frequency feature bring great challenges to the modelling work of flange squeal. In this paper, an explicit integration finite element method is presented to simulate the dynamic curving...

This paper presents a full finite element (FE) model of wheel-track interaction to study the wheel-rail impact noise excited by an insulated joint (IJ). The integration is performed in the time domain with an explicit central difference scheme. The vibratory behaviour of the track and wheel model are respectively validated with hammer test and...

This paper presents a full finite element (FE) interaction model of wheel-track to study the wheel-rail impact noise caused by squat. The wheel, the rail and some other track components are modeled with finite elements in three dimensions, where necessary and appropriate. Realistic contact geometry, including geometric irregularity (squat) in...
