A handbook on Best Practice in the Management of the Wheel-Rail Interface on Mixed Traffic Railways. Britain’s Vehicle/Track Systems Interface Committee commissioned the best practice hand-book as a means of disseminating under-standing, knowledge and know-how on good practice in managing the wheel-rail interface. This interface is critical in the safe and efficient operation of railways of all types since it experiences high loads in demanding environmental conditions.
The information to be presented has been accumulated by practitioners and academics through theoretical and applied studies, in railway research centres, university laboratories and at the trackside.
In particular, the book will contain the results of the research undertaken between 2000 and 2009, as a result of the realisation that the last years of the 20th century saw great changes in terms of both the technology used by the railways and the management of operations. The handbook will support the development of cost-effective methods for managing the lifecycle of both the wheel and the rail and for minimising the risk of future failures. The editorial team is being supported in its efforts by Network Rail and its partners in Britain’s railway industry
