Wheels v Rails: Applying New Techniques to Optimise Rail Maintenance

Activity: Talk or presentation typesOral presentation


The lecture presents the fundamental science and modelling techniques which are used in the study of wheel-rail damage prediction and how these are currently being used to develop advanced rail maintenance, renewal and planning software tools for the new Crossrail route. The lecture will explore contributory factors to rail degradation and how these can be planned for and mitigated against to help provide and maintain a safe, efficient and cost effective railway across the heart of London.
