Abstract [en]

An examination of the literature for the wear testing methodologies for wheel and rail materials reveals that while only a few different techniques have been used, there is a wide variety in exactly how the tests have been conducted and the resulting data reported. This makes comparison of the data very difficult. This work, carried out as part of the International Collaborative Research Initiative which is aiming to bring together the wheel–rail interface researchers from across the world to collate data and knowledge to try to solve some of the common problems that are faced, has examined the different approaches used and has attempted to pull together all the good practice used into a test specification for future twin-disc testing for wheel and rail materials. The adoption of the method will allow data to be compared reliably and eventually enable data to be compiled into wear maps to use as input, for example, to multi-body dynamics simulation wear prediction tools.
