The railway industry constantly seeks advancements in train speed, axle load capacity, reliability, and rail longevity. Rails undergo complex and severe loading during operation due to wheel/rail contact, resulting in two main damage mechanisms: rolling contact fatigue (RCF) andwear. Furthermore, frictional heating during wheel/rail contact...

The microstructure of a damaged bearing from the field was characterized in this work with the intention to better understand microstructural features behind formation of White Etching Cracks (WEC) in bearings. Microstructural characterization of the altered white etching area (WEA) involved conventional electron backscattered diffraction ...

R350HT is a standard premium heat-treated rail steel and the reference for new rail steel development. The present study discusses an experimental characterization of fatigue crack growth rate and fracture toughness for this refined pearlitic rail steel in mode-I-loading. The tests are carried out on compact tension specimens extracted from...

Invar alloys exhibit low thermal expansion and are useful in applications requiring dimensional stability when subject to temperature changes. Conventional production of Invar faces certain challenges that can be offset by exploiting additive manufacturing processes. This study employed pulsed gas tungsten arc welding (GTAW) to deposit Invar...

The austenitization of an initial pearlitic microstructure is simulated using the phase field model to achieve insight into White Etching Layer (WEL) formation in pearlitic railway steels. The simulations take into account the resolution of the cementite lamellae within a pearlite colony as well as the presence of pro-eutectoid ferrite. The...

The influence of soaking and cooling rates on the final microstructure of a R260Mn pearlitic railway steel subjected to fast heating is investigated. Fast-heating experiments followed or not by soaking and cooling at different rates were performed using quenching dilatometry on railway steel specimens obtained from the rail head. Additional...
