Abstract

Wheel and rail wear is a significant issue in railway systems. In the research, presented in this paper, a new method has been developed for detailed wheel wear and rail wear measurements, and tested using a twin disc test rig. 'Replica' material was applied to the wheel and rail surfaces of the test rig to make a copy of both surfaces. The replica samples were scanned using an optical profilometer and the results processed to establish wheel wear and rail wear. The effects of load, yaw angle, and speed on wheel wear and rail wear under dry conditions were investigated.
