Bonded (glued) insulated rail joints are widely used in continuously welded railroad track. These joints frequently develop problems in which the epoxy debonds from the fishing surfaces of the rail and joint bars, leading to problems such as pull-aparts and electrical failures. Insulated joint problems can be disruptive to railroad operations, and may in some cases increase the risk of train derailments. This paper describes the results of computer modeling of the effects of epoxy debonding on…

Condition Monitoring of Bolted Joints
Rail joints have been in existence for a long time of which their design has remained primarily unchanged over this period. Rail joints are a typical example of bolted joints. Like other bolted

Purpose. The authors’ aim is to evaluate more precisely the deterioration process of glued insulated rail joints with polimer-composite and steel fishplates regarding to own laboratory tests.
Ultrasonic monitoring of insulated block joints
Insulated block joints are essential components used in railway tracks. They are divided into circuits and are used for train detection and signalling. However, they also represent a weak point in

EFFECTS OF HEAVY AXLE LOADS ON BONDED INSULATED JOINT PERFORMANCE
Heavy Axle Load (HAL) coal traffic, with higher speeds and higher traffic densities, places a significant performance demand on bonded insulated rail joints (bonded IJs). This paper reviews bonded IJ
THE EFFECT OF TRACK AND VEHICLE PARAMETERS ON WHEEL/RAIL VERTICAL DYNAMIC FORCES
The railway track and vehicle combination comprises heavy rigid wheels running on heavy rails. Imperfections in either will give rise to dynamic effects which increase with speed. These will
