  • Analysis of the rotation angle of a coupler used on heavy haul locomotives
    • Authors: Xu, Z; Ma, W, Wu, Q, Luo, S.
      Pages: 835 - 844
      Abstract: Increases in train length and axle loads have significantly increased in-train forces for heavy haul trains. These forces when combined with the rotation behavior of the coupler can exert an adverse effect on the operational safety of trains. This paper analyzes the rotation behavior of a coupler resulting from the application of a compressive force. A suitable free-rotation angle for the coupler and a stabilization mechanism are also presented. Simulations were performed using a dynamic model of a train consisting of three heavy haul locomotives and two couplers. The obtained results indicate that trains with free-rotation angles of the coupler of 6°have a better dynamic safety and lower levels of wheel tread wear than trains with an initial free-rotation angle of 8°. Variation of the locomotive’s structural parameters, including the secondary stop free clearance, the distance between front and rear stops and the distance between secondary stop and coupler pin, affects the maximum rotation angle of the coupler and, in turn, the operational safety of the train. The matching of the locomotive’s structural parameters and the free-rotation angle of the coupler should be considered when selecting a heavy haul coupler and buffer system so as to avoid safety problems caused by excessive rotation behavior of the coupler.

  • Effect of train-type heterogeneity on single-track heavy haul railway line
    • Authors: Dingler, M. H; Lai, Y.-C, Barkan, C. P.
      Pages: 845 - 856
      Abstract: North American heavy haul railroads are experiencing growth in traffic demand and increasingly facing capacity constraints. A key factor influencing railroad operations is heterogeneity in train characteristics. Different train types can have substantially different operating characteristics including maximum speed, power-to-ton ratio and dispatching priority. This heterogeneity causes conflicts between trains that increase delays and reduce capacity. Dispatching simulation software was used to analyze the effect of various combinations of intermodal and bulk trains on a hypothetical, signalized, single-track line with characteristics typical of a North American freight railroad subdivision. This assessment studied the relationship between volume, heterogeneity and delay. Further work identified the key factors that contribute to the increased delays due to heterogeneity. The train characteristics of speed, acceleration, braking and priority were considered for their effect on the increased delays due to heterogeneity. Understanding these factors that affect delay allows for more effective network capacity planning and efficient rail operations. The results also suggest certain railway operating strategies that may reduce the delays caused by train-type heterogeneity thereby improving service reliability.

  • Experimental studies on the performance of rail joints with modified
           wheel/railhead contact
    • Authors: Zong, N; Dhanasekar, M.
      Pages: 857 - 877
      Abstract: Rail joints are provided with a gap to account for thermal movement and to maintain electrical insulation for the control of signals and/or broken rail detection circuits. The gap in the rail joint is regarded as a source of significant problems for the rail industry since it leads to a very short rail service life compared with other track components due to the various, and difficult to predict, failure modes – thus increasing the risk for train operations. Many attempts to improve the life of rail joints have led to a large number of patents around the world; notable attempts include strengthening through larger-sized joint bars, an increased number of bolts and the use of high yield materials. Unfortunately, no design to date has shown the ability to prolong the life of the rail joints to values close to those for continuously welded rail (CWR). This paper reports the results of a fundamental study that has revealed that the wheel contact at the free edge of the railhead is a major problem since it generates a singularity in the contact pressure and railhead stresses. A design was therefore developed using an optimisation framework that prevents wheel contact at the railhead edge. Finite element modelling of the design has shown that the contact pressure and railhead stress singularities are eliminated, thus increasing the potential to work as effectively as a CWR that does not have a geometric gap. An experimental validation of the finite element results is presented through an innovative non-contact measurement of strains. Some practical issues related to grinding rails to the optimal design are also discussed.

  • Lift-over crossings as a solution to tram-generated ground-borne vibration
           and re-radiated noise
    • Authors: Talbot J. P.
      Pages: 878 - 886
      Abstract: The operation of trams close to sensitive buildings can lead to concerns over ground-borne vibration and re-radiated noise. Vibration generated at the wheel/rail interface propagates through the track structure, through the ground and into buildings, where it may cause disturbance as perceptible vibration and/or re-radiated noise. This paper presents work undertaken to solve a re-radiated noise problem within the auditorium of the Royal Concert Hall, Nottingham, UK. The hall is situated alongside a crossover between two tracks of Nottingham’s Express Transit tramway. Initial measurements established the dominance of re-radiated noise over airborne noise. Simultaneous noise and vibration measurements were then used to establish the relative significance of the impulsive vibration generated at the various rail discontinuities of the crossover, compared with the essentially continuous vibration due to wheel/rail roughness. The results led to the selection of a new ‘lift-over’ crossing, together with an improved design of switch, as the basis for solving the problem. The paper includes descriptions of the experimental methods, together with a summary of the results. The new crossover design is described and the results of the commissioning measurements are presented as a final demonstration of the new lift-over crossing’s performance.

  • Low adhesion due to oxide formation in the presence of salt
    • Authors: Hardwick, C; Lewis, R, Olofsson, U.
      Pages: 887 - 897
      Abstract: This paper outlines work carried out to assess how, during winter months, adhesion may be influenced by contamination of the rail head by the salt/grit that is applied to road surfaces as a preventative method to stop ice formation. Twin-disc testing was carried out in which a mechanically formed oxide layer was produced on the disc specimens prior to assessing adhesion levels under realistic contact pressures and slips in the following conditions: dry, wet, dry salt and two salt/water solutions. Under dry conditions adhesion levels differ little from reference tests without an oxide layer, however, the presence of an oxide layer under wet conditions can be seen to further reduce adhesion from a reference level (0.2) to below 0.1. When salt is entrained into the contact it increases adhesion levels above that seen under wet conditions in the presence of an oxide layer, however, the presence of salt is most likely to affect the generation of rail head oxides in the first place and in turn influence adhesion.
