Abstract [en]

This paper reviews the current literature regarding iron oxide formation in the wheel-rail contact in order to assess the possible role of iron oxides in the “Wet-Rail” phenomenon, which causes low adhesion between the wheel and the rail. The paper discusses the structure and formation of oxides from a chemical perspective before analysing the direct tribological effects and outlining the techniques that havebeen used to study the oxide layers. This paper also suggests how knowledge of the subject could be expanded and how further understanding of the “Wet-Rail” phenomenon could lead to better mitigation methods, resulting in both economic andsafety benefits.
